Gibsons Steps Reviews
The thought of climbing down stairs "carved into the rock" was daunting in the early morning drizzle and mist. Not wanting to miss a decent photo op I parked in the car par and headed for the steps. Q... more »
The best time to visit here would be early in the morning. Timing it carefully with the low tide, there is a safe window of about an hour to walk almost to the end and return safely to the car park. more »
Lovely area to visit either before or after The Twelve Apostles. At low tide you can access the beach via some steep but easily traversable steps. From the bottom you can laze along the beach, walk closer to one of the Apostles and take some wonderful scenic photographs. I would imagine at sunset this would make for some incredible photo opportunities. Can be quite busy but there is plenty of space for everyone. Obviously as with a lot of the coastal areas it is definitely not recommended for swimming as the currents would pull you out to sea very quickly if not first rendering you unconscious on the rocks.
Gibson Steps is must visit place on the way to twelve apostle. The place is easily accessible by narrow steps from car parking area. It is good place to visit one of the apostle from close distance. Not advisable to swim here. Long way to walk along the sea coast.
