    The 12 Apostles are certainly stunning. At the same time, the walks nearby are very limited and after about ten minutes you've seen your fill.

    They are doable in a single long day trip from Melbourne but almost not worth it. It's much smarter to drive down the Great Ocean Road and spent the night so that the long drug is split and both days can be enjoyed.

    One of the singlemost beautiful geological wonders on Earth. Imposing, otherworldly, and stately - it's difficult not to be impressed by this stretch of Australian coastline!

    A series of massive karsts scattered along the ocean shores, it's a highlight among many while driving across the Great Ocean Road. Also, what's great is even if it's over 100 degrees outside, the ocean breeze ensure that you'll never feel uncomfortably hot.

    A few years ago when I traveled to Australia, my friends and I took the Great Ocean Road to visit the 12 Apostles. At the time I didn't know what the 12 Apostles were besides the religious connotation. The 12 Apostles are a collection of offshore sea stacks on Victoria's Great Ocean Road. There is a main viewing area on the corner of Booringa Road and Great Ocean Road. It was about 4 hours out and 4 hours back, so practically a full day with stops to eat and visit. All that time in the car made me a little carsick, but once I got there and started taking photos of the cool rock formations, I was glad to see it. It's a gorgeous place. Check it out if you have a full day to spend on a road with wind in your hair and adventure in your heart.

    Totally gorgeous views. Managed to catch it around sunset, but be careful on the roads back to civilisation!

    We spent a few days driving the Great Ocean Road on our last trip to Melbourne and stopped here to see the funky limestone formations off the coast of the Port Campbell National Park. As the sea keeps eating away at them, they keep falling into the water, so there's no longer 12. However, that shouldn't stop you from going to see them.

    Witness the rugged splendour of the famous 12 Apostles (now only actually 8 stacks), magnificent rock stacks that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean on Victoria's dramatic coastline.
    The limestone cliffs were created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10-20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs.

    The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore. View the 12 Apostles at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun. It truly is an breathtaking sight! You won't regret it.

    Drive here is breath-taking enough but once we arrived at the Twelve apostles I could not breathe. They took my breath away... That's how amazing the view is. Then we went home.

Description

The Great Ocean Road brings you to one of the most spectacular pieces of coast in Victoria, Australia. Towering, vibrant limestone stacks known collectively as The Twelve Apostles stand ready to greet you. This area is particularly suited for amazing photographic opportunities, featuring brilliant hues at dawn and dusk. The highly textured limestone pillars were formed by erosion from wind and water. With the high rate of erosion, the stacks are constantly changing with a new stack expected to appear in the near future. You can view the formations by land, or take a helicopter tour to see them from a different perspective. The Twelve Apostles bring you into an area of Australia’s most incredible coastal National Park, a perfect launching point for further exploration.
