Natural

Attractions Nature’s showcase


Witness Nature brandishing her brilliance

Commanding and charismatic The Twelve Apostles are our headline act. For soul-stirring majesty, marvel at these giant ocean-bound rock stacks at sunset or dawn. Take up a perfect photo vantage point on the specially built viewing platform and capture the powerful drama. For an unforgettable bird’s eye perspective, take a flight over choppy seas. At Loch Ard Gorge, soak up the eerie legacy of maritime misadventure and explore geological features as you walk clifftop trails. Follow the coastal road and let nature reveal her many treasures: The Arch, London Bridge and The Grotto. Head beyond Peterborough to the less-crowded but equally magnetic Bay of Martyrs and Bay of Islands Coastal Park. Saunter along the Port Campbell Jetty and relax against a backdrop of jaw-dropping scenery. To the east, the 800m return walk to Gables Lookout near Moonlight Head (4.5km gravel road) rewards you with spectacular views over the ocean and reefs from one of the highest seacliffs in mainland Australia. Feeling fit? Descend more than 350 steps to Wreck Beach for haunting reminders of the sea’s treachery (only safe during low tide and calm seas).

Hinterland exhilaration Further inland, climb (or drive) to the top of Mount Leura and tramp the breath-easy trail to nearby Mount Sugarloaf, a perfectly formed volcanic cone. The pay-off is panoramic, 360-degree views stretching across basalt plains. Follow up with a picnic by Lake Bullen Merri – a crater lake popular with anglers and boaters – and an afternoon ambling beneath ancient shady trees at Camperdown Botanic Gardens, where the sunset vista is a doozie.
