Port Campbell

Port Campbell, a resort and cray fishing port facing Bass Strait in western Victoria, is on the Great Ocean Road about midway between Cape Otway and Warrnambool.

It was named after Alexander Campbell, a farmer, whaler and trader. Campbell took shelter in the Port Campbell inlet during a Bass Strait storm in about 1843. Port Phillip’s Superintendent LaTrobe showed Port Campbell on a sketch map that he drew in 1846.
