From the same carpark as for the Anvil Rock, a sign to the left marks the way for a 400-metre, 5-minute walk to the Wind Eroded Cave.

I first heard of Cape Bridgewater from a Malaysian Chinese whom I met at Colac Botanic Garden last April.

Then I found a holiday house in Cape Bridgewater so...

If you join a day tour to the Great Ocean Road, the coach will normally travel via M1/A1 (Princes Freeway/Highway) in the forward journey and along the coast on the return journey or vice-versa. Two or three stops will be made along the coast, with the coach passing through coastal holiday towns such as Apollo Bay and Lorne. There will only be time to make two or three stops at Port Campbell National Park, that is, at Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and perhaps London Bridge. I would say the gems of these natural wonders are concentrated in Port...
