We loved the set up when we visited The Twelve Apostles, great parking and great to have the toilets nearby.

Small visitors centre but considering the mount of visitors here surprisingly low key. A small selection of souvenirs, information and snacks next to a very large car park, thankfully set a bit back from the coast (you cross the road through a pedestrian underpass).

There are toilets here and a small cafe. The information section is quite basic and limited. Plenty of parking outside for your car before you go and view the twelve apostles and other rock formations.

This Visitors Centre located at one of Victoria's premier tourist attractions ... the Twelve Apostles ... was itself a disappointment ... but certainly not the "12 Apostles". There are toilets and a small café at the Centre but the tourist information was scant & basic.

This place is pretty basic. The is a small shop which has well informed staff and information boards. You can get ice creams and drinks but not much else. The toilet facilities are clean. Expect large crowds as this is where the big coaches stop.

Choose the right hours to be there. Was there at 530pm and the sun was almost setting and its not the most favourable time for certain areas for photos. Horde of tourists fighting to get the best photo spot. Beautiful nonetheless.

The center isn’t very big. Bathrooms and a small store that sells souvenirs, drinks and ice cream. The parking facility is good. Wear comfortable shoes, it’s a decent walk from the car park to the viewing platform. Don’t get me wrong, the small visitors center...More
