Twelve Apostles

Washed by crashing waves just off the craggy shoreline of western Victoria, the dramatic Twelve Apostles stand sentinel off the Great Ocean Road. Once joined to the surrounding mainland, the limestone outcrops are a Victorian icon and an enduring symbol of nature's mighty power and beauty.

Pounded by surf and tide for thousands of years, the limestone crags are gradually being whittled down in number – currently only eight of the Twelve Apostles remain – and the neighbouring rocky arch known as London Bridge has collapsed into the roaring sea.

The wild western Victorian coastline is a bewitching and beautiful part of Australia, the site of tragic shipwrecks in days gone by and the perfect place for exhilarating cliff-top walks, wreck diving and other untamed encounters with Mother Nature.

Practical Info

The 12 Apostles are 250km (155 miles) west of Melbourne near Port Campbell, on the Shipwreck Coast. The best way to get here is by organised tour or car, following one of the world's most scenic drives along the Great Ocean Road. Viewing platforms and timber boardwalks run along the top of the cliffs for windswept strolls, and interpretive signs at the visitor center explain the area's geological and historic significance.
