Childers Cove

Childers Cove and the nearby Murnanes Bay and Sandy Cove could be the Great Ocean Road’s best hidden gems.

The twin inlets feature towering limestone cliffs on three sides and the mighty southern ocean ahead of you.

Sandy Cove, as the name suggests, has more sand and lends itself to either an idyllic beach walk or to just find a spot to sit and marvel at the sandstone stacks protruding from the sea.

What truly makes Childers Cove special is that while the 12 Apostles attract millions of visitors each year, this is a place which is just as spectacular that in all likelihood, you will have to yourself.
