Twelve Apostles

Just a short four-hour drive from Melbourne (yes, in Australia, four hours is a pretty short drive) along the Great Ocean Road, you’ll find the famous Twelve Apostles, magnificent rock stacks rising up majestically from the sea. Created by millions of years of erosion of the limestone cliff walls, these formations were left isolated from the shoreline and now stand up to forty-five meters tall.

Their beauty cannot be adequately described, and my pictures do not do them justice. You’ll have to go and see them for yourself. While you’re there, take the 86 stairs of Gibson’s Steps down the side of a 70 meter cliff wall to the beach, and let the tide swirl in around your ankles. Just don’t linger too long – there’s only one way back up!
