Planning to do the Great Ocean Road in Australia? Don’t forget to stop off at Point Addis Marine National Park for spectacular views of Bells Beach and the surrounding reefs.

Take a moment to appreciate the sandstone cliffs and twinkling ocean before heading down to the beach for a spot of snorkelling. There’s a great walkway that will take you to some fantastic look-out points. It’s here that I’ve spotted whales far out at sea!

90% of marine life here is found nowhere else, so keep your eyes peeled for sea squirts and stinging hydroids. Feeling energetic? Enjoy a stroll along the walking tracks (pictured above) or embark on a 5km hike to Bells Beach – a great little  surfing spot.
