12 Apostles. Iconic right? The denouement of the Great Ocean Road. Only yesterday on our 1 day (smaller coach) tour we nearly didn't make it. The fuel tank threw a leak at Apollo Bay and we head a long, hot, humid pit stop. Fair go...More
All the hype associated with the Twelve Apostles becomes a reality when viewed from a very well-designed walkway enabling the inevitable crowds of people in attendance. It is likely that the Twelve Apostles were the greatest draw card to those travelling the Great Ocean Road,...More
I've visited the Twelve Apostles a few times. On this occasion I went with a 5 year old, an 8 month old baby and my parents. We arrived at the Twelve Apostles at around 5:30pm. It was pretty easy to find a car parking space...More
Although the views are magnificent, you need to get there early the crowd becomes very popular thoughout the day. The path also leads to Gisbon's Beach which is a beach that shows one of the Apostles. It is simply breathtaking the views and that these...More
Absolutely beautiful, it's horrible to say but the insesant attack of blow flies took away from the experience.I mean the views are one in a million but your constantly swatting flies away. It takes it away when you have hoards of people generally associated with...More
Wonderful view and simply a must to see in your lifetime, kids enjoyed it too. Do not go on Christmas Day as it was packed car parks and tourist everywhere, we went on the 27/12/18 and was easy to access areas
We visited this area back in 1998 when there was little tourism. It is amazing just how much tourism has grown here. Bus loads of tourists jump of here to follow their bucket list dream. Great attraction, although they should not close down the second...More
It had been over 15 years since my last visit to the 12 Apostles, and it has changed a lot. No longer do you park on the same side of the road as them, there is now a full on visitor centre and car park,...More

We went in May and did a one day trip trip from Melbourne and stopped at Split Point lighthouse and Apollo Bay for the scallop pies. Reached the Twelve Apostles around 2pm and the sun was behind the rocks so the pictures did not look as nice on the side which has more of the rock formation. As my husband is an avid photographer the angle of the light was not ideal. If we have the time we would prefer to stay 1 night at Port Campbell and visit the 12 Apostles in the morning. I have not tried the inland road but perhaps take the GOR on the way there and the inland road on the way back.

Australia has a strict no pets allowed except for service dogs at any of the reserves, preserves or national parks. If the pet is traveling with you it has to stay in the car. There are signs in many of the national parks letting people know about this. So definitely no walking of you dog at 12 Apostles. From the Office of Environment and Heritage "Domestic pets can be a threat to native animals, and can disrupt other people's enjoyment of parks and reserves. The NPWS wants to maintain the natural environment and visitor enjoyment of these parks, while promoting equitable access to parks for people with disabilities.
The NPWS therefore provides park access for trained assistance animals, but access for other pets needs to be restricted." You can google pet policy national parks Australia and you will see the page I am quoting from which has a title pets in parks policy
As for accommodation there are plenty of options in the area. The caravan parks are primarily privately owned and campers and pet policies are up to the owners. Generally I don't think they restrict pets in the campgrounds as long as they are not inside the parks. I used trip advisor to get an idea of the possible places to stay and the price range. Google Port Campbel visitor information center and check out the webpagel.
