Sites to see in Port Campbell National Park:

Loch Ard Gorge – home to the famous Loch Ard shipwreck which claimed the lives of 52 of the 54 passengers. It is as interesting to look at as it is to learn about.

12 Apostles – this landmark does not require much introduction. The 12 Apostles are one of the most visited sites in Australia. The limestone stacks are a result of millions of years of erosion and rough seas.

Gibson Steps – take the steps carved into the cliff by Henry Gibson down to the beach. At sea level you can take in the impressive Gog and Magog stacks – which are not considered part of the 12 Apostles that sit around the corner.
