23 Descending Gibson Steps near Port Campbell on Great Ocean Road, Australia

Get ready for a visual and physical adventure, your first inside of Port Campbell National Park. From an elevated platform near the Gibson Steps parking lot, you can admire the seascape embracing two rock stacks called Gog and Magog. Then begin descending this steep staircase. The 86 steps were first carved by the Kirrae Whurrong people. They were named after Scotland native Hugh Hamilton Gibson. He was an early settler who built the nearby Glenample Homestead in the late 1860s. He became famous in 1878 by sheltering the only two survivors of the 54 people who were shipwrecked aboard the British clipper Loch Ard.
