Port Campbell Travel Guide: 129 reviews and 550 photos

Port Campbell

This is a town on the Great Ocean Road, the most spectacular road in Southern Australia. It has a population of only 200, its job is to introduce us to the 12 Apostels. It is a cosy and quiet little town, with lovely bakeries and cafes, some upmarket restaurants, as well as the traditional pub. It is growing, with various motels and hotels, as well as a backpackers, and many Bed and Breakfasts, and new cabins. Also various tour operators for diving and boating, siteseeing and helicopters etc operate out of the town.

The 12 Apostles

Port Campbell is truly the gateway to the 12 Apostles. Drive through the town, after stopping for a well earned cappucino and cake, to get to the famed scenery. Visit the tourist info centre, where you will also find the heli tours through PremiAIR. I can highly recommend these!
Then you will see views like these...
