Loch Ard Gorge Area

Three self-guided walks have been developed around the Loch Ard Gorge area. Allow two to three hours to make the most of your visit here.

Shipwreck Walk - this walk tells the tragic story of the Loch Ard shipwreck from the wreck site to the cemetery.

Geology - explains the geology of the coastline and the forces that shape it.

Living on the Edge - discover life on the edge of these sheer cliffs.

Twelve Apostles Walk

Stop and visit the Twelve Apostles Centre before taking the walk to view the amazing Twelve Apostles coastline. The Centre offers insightful cultural heritage stories, shelter and toilets. Walk the short distance (500m) through the tunnel, under the Great Ocean Road to various lookouts offering expansive, breathtaking views.

Muttonbird Island

Muttonbird Island, near Loch Ard Gorge, is an important nesting place for the Muttonbird (Short-tailed Shearwater). These remarkable birds migrate about 30,000 km every year, spending summer in the northern Pacific Ocean and returning the last week of September to nest in various rookeries in Bass Straight. You can watch them fly ashore each evening from October to April, although the best viewing is January to February.
