Gibson Steps refer to the steep stone steps cut into the limestone cliffs that lead down to a narrow beach near to the Twelve Apostles. This 360 panorama was taken at the top of the cliff looking down onto the beach. One of the Twelve Apostles stacks is visible at the right end of the beach. This panorama was taken in the summer, and the fields behind the car park are dotted with hay bales.

Gibson Steps are a about 700m from the Twelve Apostles in Port Campbell National Park on the Great Ocean Road. The car park overlooks the beach and narrow steps are cut into the cliffs allowing access to the beach. The steps are steep and uneven, and passing is difficult as they are quite narrow.

The beach below Gibson Steps is popular with onshore fishing and surfing. There are rip tides in the area and the possibility of sharks. There is no life guard on the beach and no amenities.


Road: By car or coach from either Peterborough or Warrnambool along the Great Ocean Road. The Gibson Steps is a short walk from the visitor centre at the Twelve Apostles.
