The Gibson Steps are an area of cliffs on the south coast of Australia. The cliffs are the first sightseeing stopoff in Port Campbell National Park for travellers heading West along the Great Ocean Road, located about 2 minutes drive from The Twelve Apostles. The name Gibson Steps refers to the staircase leading down to the stretch of beach.
A staircase carved and concreted is where you will descend to access the Beach. The decent is quite easy but has many steps and gives you an appreciation of the enormity of these cliff faces. The beach itself is set in an isolated cove encased by the cliff faces.
The beach is wild with rich red sands and the incoming waves echo throughout the cove displaying the force the Great Southern Ocean.
There are also excellent viewing platforms at the top of the Cliffs faces that offer fantastic views of this untamed coastline

I have always had a love of capturing images and in my early teens took many photographs on my little Kodak camera. I loved the wild open spaces and bird life in particular and longed to be able to be an accomplished photographer. It took ill health and a forced early retirement to re-kindle this love of photography. I am a self-taught amateur photographer who has had no formal training. I take great pride and joy in my work and these days have the time to pursue this wonderful hobby.
