Port Campbell – Attractive small seaside village at the western end of the Great Ocean Road in Australia
Port Campbell is nestled amongst some of the Victoria’s most spectacular coastline scenery, including Port Campbell National Park and the Twelve Apostles. Sheltered by cliffs and Norfolk pines, it has the atmosphere of a haven on the edge of wild nature.
Named after Captain Campbell – a Scotsman in charge of Port Fairy’s whaling station – the town began as a small fishing port with surrounding pastoral runs.
Today it is a great base for seeing the Twelve Apostles, the dramatic rock stacks that have made this coastline famous. Other stunning coastal features include Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps and the Bay of Islands.
Creeks and the harbour offer excellent fishing and surfing is epic with Two Mile Bay revered as one of the best big-wave breaks in Australia. Join a dive tour and visit large canyons and gorges on the sea floor or a boat tour taking anglers and passengers close to the stacks, caves and arches in the area.
