BAY OF ISLAND: Take in stunning views on a walk through the coastal heartland of Great Ocean Road

Bay of Island Australia The Bay of Islands Coastal Park is a natural reserve stretching around 32 kilometres alongside the coastline and it is located within the popular Great Ocean Road (in between Peterborough and Warrnambool) in the state of Victoria. It is the official end stop of the Great Ocean Road as it further meets the Princess Highway (A1).

The best of Bay of Islands

The whole Bay of Islands is offering some of the most spectacular lookout areas and coastal walks.

The stunning ocean views are easily accessible as the car parking facilities are always located in a short walking distance (in the Bay of Islands itself, as well as in the Bay of Martyrs, Three Mile Beach or the Childers Cove).

Apart from the eyes flattering views, the coastal park includes also many other natural and geological features such as sheer rocky cliffs, pristine natural surrounding with some rare fauna and flora, rock stacks and cliff formations or beautiful beaches.

One of the rock stands is known to be a home to a black-faced cormorants‘ nest (rare marine cormorant found only in Victoria).

Due to the limited accessibility of beaches from only certain spots and conditions which can often change (causing possible danger), it is recommended to check the latest information and possible changes before entering.Bay of Island
