Visited on a Great Ocean Road tour, it wasn't what I was expecting! A stunning drive up to here and such a beautiful rainforest, lots of varieties of fungi, a nice path which leads you around. Plenty of parking.

this place is a must, it's not far to walk but impressive if you care about nature. It's only a short drive from Apollo bay
