Bay of Islands reviews
I love Bay of Islands! It so gorgeous and the huge rocks make you feel small. There’s two tiny viewing platforms but that’s ok if you go when it’s quiet. Don’t know when that might be. We went around.... more »
Better than the 12 Apostles in my opinion. Great views from the lookout and make sure to take the boat ramp entrance as well to access the small beach for a paddle and to explore the rocky area. more »
Just one of the many beautiful stops along the Great Ocean Road. Crowds and flies can be a bit trying, but worth it nonetheless. Easy walking access and multiple lookouts. Parking nearby but it can get full in peak times.
A nice an relaxing drive from warrambool to arrive there for an afternoon drive. Easy,when arrived we got fish an chips from the local shop near the water. The fish was grilled but was grilled on the hotplate after a h as hamburger was cooked. Fish tasted meaty..The other hot food was yummy
