The Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road

Situated on the Great Ocean Road, the Twelve Apostles are limestone rock stacks which rise up from the Southern Ocean on Victorias coastline.

Created over millions of years by constant blasting winds and the wild ocean,  erosion of the limestone cliffs has formed 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. 

Although sadly over the years some of the rock stacks have started to crumble, what is left is jaw-dropping beauty, no matter what time of the year you visit.

I was lucky enough to visit this wonderful spot with my fiancé earlier this year (it is currently Summer in Australia from December – March), and am definitely planning another visit down the Great Ocean Road within the year.

With so many beautiful spots to see, Apollo Bay, Lorne, Anglesea, Airleys Inlet, it is a definite must for anyone visiting Victoria, Australia.
