  • Impressive place. You can look at several rock formation and even access the beach and take a bath. This place combines a lot of the elements that you can’t find in such a composition along Great Ocean road. Car park great, but no toilets. Some benches to sit down and enjoy nature available. Take your time, it is worth it
  • love it here, always been a favourite place. I enjoy the history of how it came to be, and how the survivors managed to survive. Love that I can view the gorge and where the ship sank from above on the cliffs, as well as walk down the steps to the beach area. When looking out to the ocean from the beach area, it gives a sense of the struggle the survivors would have by swimming to the beach, then by having to climb the cliffs to seek out help. Awesome place.
