YOU’RE WELCOME

I AM A WILD REMINDER YOU’RE ALIVE. The 12 Apostles Coast & Hinterland, on the Great Ocean Road, will forever change you. Set your spirit free in a natural world of breathtaking beauty and wild power. Be enlivened by a coastline in constant flux. Shape your own adventure in a land brimming with flavours of the earth and ocean.

MOTHER NATURE’S WORK IN PROGRESS. There’s never a dull day (or night). Embrace the relentless power of the Southern Ocean sculpting a coastline that stretches beyond sight. Feel dwarfed by vast ocean panoramas and giant offshore sea stacks. Lick salt spray from your lips as the blowhole erupts again. Be lost (and found) in moments of pure connection – wildlife encounters, endless wave-watching, sunset over the 12 Apostles.


GET TO THE HEART OF OUR HINTERLAND. Head inland for lush green pastures, fertile soils and farmgates flaunting local produce and artisan fare. Let a gourmet experience at the source transform you – ruby red strawberries, handmade cheeses and single malt whisky. Poke around country towns and timber hamlets. Cycle a rail trail into the unknown. Behold an ancient volcanic landscape, shape-shifted by nature’s power into lakes and scattered mounts on a fertile plain. Like nature, you are a work in progress. Stay a few days and let this magical place renew and revitalise your spirit. Know that you will never return the same.

BIG NATURE

I AM THE STORM-CARVED COASTLINE, THE BEAUTY OF THE WRECKAGE. 12 Apostles Coast is soul-stirring and mystical. Follow your instincts and carve your own adventure. Explore the favourites – 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, The Arch, London Bridge and the Grotto. Then go deeper to the wilds of Bay of Martyrs and Bay Of Islands Coastal Park where you can ogle the ocean from an empty lookout and ponder your place in the world. Go in search of the endless wave and a mammoth surf swell. There are dozens of lookouts, beaches and clifftops where you can pause, gaze out and reflect. Capture a handful of images on your camera, then focus on being present. Amble along the Port Campbell Jetty for a jaw-dropping bay perspective. Chance upon wildlife and unobstructed views of Sentinel Rock and the 12 Apostles on the 3.8km Port Campbell Discovery Walk. Take the 350 steps down to Wreck Beach for eerie reminders of the sea’s treachery (anchors only accessible during low tides and calm seas).


NATURE’S GIFTS > Take the 1.2km trail from the 12 Apostles car park. Climb 86 cliffstairs down the Gibson Steps to beach level to be dwarfed by epic cliff line and offshore stacks. > Retreat to a secluded beach with just you and your thoughts.

OUTDOOR ACTIVE

I AM A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH. Landscapes that will have you jumping for joy. Fill your lungs with fresh salty air and stride for the next bend knowing you will always be rewarded. 12 Apostles Coast & Hinterland is the great outdoors at its most epic. A place to let the sun warm your shoulders as you walk a clifftop trail. Run wild with the wind in your hair on a secluded beach. Hire a bike and pedal a rail trail. Bring your A-game to a local golf course. Behold big wave surfing at Eastern Reef (Port Campbell), a booming tow-in break. Paddle a crater lake at Bullen Merri. A myriad of tracks, trails and boardwalks will guide your way along the coast, through the inland volcanic plains, around villages and into rolling countryside. Try the 3.8km Port Campbell Discovery Walk or prep up for the Great Ocean Walk’s 105km challenge. Find your own path or ask at the Visitor Information Centre for local knowhow on trail running, road cycling routes and places to paddle.


MOVE IT, MOVE IT > Take the 12A morning express. Rise before the sun for an incredible 7km walk along the Great Ocean Walk, from Princetown to the 12 Apostles in the early morning light. A free bus leaving at 7.30am on school days from the 12 Apostles car park will get you to the starting point. > For a leisurely round of golf check out the courses at Terang, Cobden or overlooking the beach at Peterborough. > Experienced walker? Train-up, gear-up and dare to do the 105km Great Ocean Walk independently, carrying your own pack and supplies from camp to camp. It’s a test of fitness, determination and planning with its very own 12 Apostles finale. | greatoceanwalk.com.au > Ride a rail trail to remember. The 34km Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail offers a gently undulating off-road experience through rich farmland pastures and native landscapes. No bike? Hire one locally. > Wander the many tracks around Loch Ard Gorge, where the tragic story of the wrecked clipper ship the Loch Ard whispers in the breeze and comes to life in trail signage. Imagine how survivors scaled the vertical cliffs to seek rescue for their shipmates.


VILLAGE INSPIRATION

I AM THE VILLAGE THAT WELCOMES YOU WITH A RELAXED AND KNOWING SMILE. Escape to a hinterland with a rich sense of place and provenance. Belong in a tiny town.

TAKE A PEAK

I AM A LANDSCAPE LEGACY OF A VOLCANIC AGE. Take the meandering road north from the coast into an ancient landscape – Australia’s largest volcanic plain. You’ll see all around you the remnants of a time when nature moved the earth: volcanic peaks, craters, lakes and wetland features. There’s no better place to ground yourself in the rawness of nature. Climb a volcano, find a mountain shaped like an elephant, glean insights about geological features as you while away a few hours spotting them from a lofty lookout. There are lakes for days. The legacy of a crater field: dozens of lakes and waterways teeming with uncrowded potential – quiet fishing, brilliant boating and sunset floating. Lake Bullen Merri and Lake Tooliorok are a couple of stand-outs. Plumb their crystal clear depths, picnic on their shores or glide across from bank to bank, eyes peeled for rare wildlife encounters. Browse for treasures like no one’s watching at Noorat, Lismore and Mortlake. For a hearty dose of country charm and personality, stop in for a refreshment at a country pub.


TRAILBLAZING TIME > If scaling extinct volcanoes rocks your world, head to Mount Noorat or Mount Elephant. Pack a picnic and clamber to the top of Mount Leura to see the lie of the land. Take the easy trail to nearby Mount Sugar Loaf, a perfectly formed volcano cone. > Send the kids on a high-tech nature expedition in volcano country. A treasure hunt through the Volcanic Lakes and Plains. Pick up GPS units + treasure maps at Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre or Camperdown Courthouse Information and Arts. > At Lake Purrumbete (Camperdown) fish for trout or redfin without leaving terra firma. Cast out from Hose’s Rocks into the shallow volcanic crater lake and enjoy the thrill of reeling in a big one. Fishing not your thing? Relax with a bite to eat instead in the friendly and atmospheric Lake Edge Café. > OK with heights? Climb narrow stairs up the 30-metre Manifold Clock Tower at Camperdown. Your reward: wicked views over historic streetscapes and an insider squiz of the clock workings. Timing is everything – only open first Sunday of the month. > In Skipton’s Stewart Park, nestle quietly on the banks of Mount Emu Creek around dusk for a chance sighting of an elusive platypus.
