The weather during summer and autumn is ideal for exploring the limestone cliffs of Port Campbell National Park. With iconic natural features being the major drawcard, the township is compact and friendly. With cafes and a cosy pub, your tummy bugs can be satisfied in a jiffy.
Motel accommodation is popular and it’s advisable to enquire in advance during busier times. Comfortable apartments and a caravan park can be found within walking distance of the takeaways, with a supermarket able to provide most of your needs.
