The Great Ocean Road : 2

Posted by : Helen : (is currently photographing at home in, Australia) on 4 December 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

+++ Gibson's Steps +++


The Gibson's Steps are the first stop along this amazing coastline if you are heading west from Melbourne. Once you descend the 86 steps down the sheer cliff face, you are rewarded with this view!

Once on the beach you are dwarfed by the 70 metre high cliffs one one side and you can see the giant limestone stacks rising up out of the sea.

The steps were carved into the face of the cliff by local settler Hugh Gibson, who worked on the route originally used by the Kirrae Whurrong people.
