I AM A STORM CARVED COASTLINE
The Twelve Apostles Coast & Hinterland region is home to Port Campbell National Park and the Twelve Apostles, but nature provides a gallery of so much more...London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge, Bay of Islands, and thats just a start of what you can see carved by the Southern ocean on the coast. In land enjoy the rolling hills of agricultural pastures before exploring the lakes and craters that are remnants from the regions volcanic past!
One of the most well-known highlights of the Great Ocean Road is The Twelve Apostles.
Situated in the Port Campbell National Park, the massive limestone structures that tower 45 metres above the tempestuous Southern Ocean, leave its visitors awe-struck in wonder at their size and beauty.
Behind the eight remaining stacks (five have fallen since their discovery) are majestic cliffs, around 70 metres high.
For all your 12 Apostles info, stop and visit the Twelve Apostles Centre before taking the walk to view the amazing Twelve Apostles coastline. The Centre offers insightful cultural heritage stories, shelter and toilets. Walk the short distance (500m) through the tunnel, under the Great Ocean Road to various lookouts offering expansive, breathtaking views.
Glorious at both dusk and dawn the Twelve Apostles, by the forces of nature has gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs which became arches and when they collapsed, rock islands as high as 45 metres were left isolated from the shore.
Interested in what the 12 Apostles looked like before the erosion? Have a peek at this....
