How to find this Port Campbell Hidden Gem

The Great Ocean Road is well known for its hidden gems. The impressive scenery brings in people from all over the world to see the 12 apostles. However just west of the 12 apostles in a small coastal town known as Port Campbell. On our trip to this town, we found a unique view of the impressive cliff edges and popular sights which many do not know about. This Port Campbell hidden gem is a must for your bucket list!

This is one the best short and easy hikes Great Ocean Road has and offers a unique perspective of the area. The Port Campbell hike will be a treat to anyone who finds it, although it should be noted that there are no safety rails and the entire hike is along unstable cliff edges.

Please take caution of the risks involved before delving into this hike.

To make the most of this spot. Make sure you come during sunrise or sunset to catch the rocks and cliff edges changing colour.
