East of the Otways, the Great Ocean Road levels out and enters narrow, flat, scrubby escarpment lands that fall away to sheer, 70m-high cliffs along the coast between Princetown and Peterborough – a distinct change of scene. This is Port Campbell National Park, home to the Twelve Apostles, the most famous and most photographed stretch of the Great Ocean Road.
However, don't for a moment think that the Twelve Apostles constitute the road's end point. There's a string of iconic rock stacks west of Port Campbell, some arguably more scenic than the apostles themselves, among them the Bay of Islands and London Bridge.
Other than the bay at Port Campbell, none of the beaches along this stretch is suitable for swimming because of strong currents and undertows.
The Kirrae Whurrong are the traditional custodians of this coastline.
