We stopped lots of times on our Great Ocean Road journey to take photos but this is definitely a must see.

What a site to see, it was foggy as clearing and the bay looked just incredible. We have some amazing sites in Victoria.

Such a beautiful view, it was windy and pouring when we were there so we siding go all the way down, but did get some lovely photos. Well worth the stop.

Wonderful grounds,beautifully detailed history of both Maori and British culture and the affects it had on the development of NZ. Options in the area for boat cruise seeing dolhpins etc. Whole area is lovely and well maintained.

The view out at the Bay of Islands is one of the best of the Great Ocean Road. Its incredible to look out on all of the islands and the powerful waves crashing against them.

The very first stop on the Great Ocean Road for us, and what a stop it is, just a short walk down the viewing platform where you have beautiful views all around you. Highly recommended as a place to kick it all off.

The scenery here is stunning and I would say probably rivals the Twelve Apostles, especially as the latter has become too popular for its own good.

I would pack a Rain Coat as early September , there is the usual spring rain, and it may be windy and chilly so a warm jacket would be needed
