Grade: Easy

Only a 2 minute drive from the Twelve Apostles this is a fantastic location to descend from the clifftops to the wild beach. The name Gibson Steps refers to the staircase leading down to a long stretch of beach. It is believed the steps were first carved into the cliff possibly by the original Kirrae Whurrong inhabitants and later maintained by a local settler, Hugh Gibson. The many stairs can prove to be a challenge on the climb back up but this site is truly breath taking!

There is a designated accessible car parking space with good access from the car park to the viewing area 30m away. Access to the beach is via 86 steps. Tide and ocean condition permitting walks are possible to the east and west of the steps. This area provides good fishing but is not safe for swimming.

The two offshore stacks that may be viewed from both the viewing platform and (tide and sea permitting) from beach level are known locally as Gog and Magog. These rock stacks are not onsidered part of the 12 Apostles.

Port Campbell is the closest town to Gibson’s steps. There is a great range of accommodation and restaurants in Port Campbell.
