From here, you've got a range of stunning attractions right at your fingertips. Great Otway national Park is just an hour's drive away and will spoil you with stunning rugged coastlines, rock platforms, windswept sandy beaches and breathtaking waterfalls. Make sure you take the time to visit Cape Otway Lightstation for a chance to witness the oldest surviving lighthouse on the Australian mainland.
Once you've strolled through the ferny gullies and soaked up the great outdoors, keep heading down Great Ocean road until you reach the 12 Apostles just before Port Campbell National Park. These rock stacks are world famous for a reason - they are simply spectacular. Rising dramatically out of the Southern Ocean, the rocks reach heights of up to 45m and are especially stunning at sunrise and sunset. Stay a while and watch the changing light dance along the rocks - just make sure you've got your camera at the ready!
