The 12 ApostlesThe 12 Apostles

Located within the Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, the Apostles are a collection of massive, yet elegant limestone rocks, protruding from the ocean. The tallest apostle is 45 meters with a dramatic 70-meter tall limestone cliff towering over the apostles as a backdrop.

There are plenty of opportunities to view the apostles along the Great Ocean Road, with viewing platforms and boardwalks to soak up the sights. Photos simply do them little justice.

The apostles are slowly eroding due to the constant beating of the ocean and other natural elements around the formations. Several collapses have occurred over the past few years so if you’re in the Melbourne area, a trip to visit the apostles before they disappear is well worth it.

No matter what type of holiday you are looking for Australia has it all. Full of possibilities with a range of experiences you will have to come back to enjoy them all.
