Keep the faith with the Twelve Apostles in Victoria

A stunning landscape, a fascinating history and one of Victoria’s most popular tourist destinations. The Twelve Apostles is the number one must-see attraction for every person who travels along the Great Ocean Road. The Twelve Apostles have survived for longer than the number of years that people have inhabited Australia. They were created by constant erosion of the mainland’s limestone cliffs by the Southern Ocean up to 20 million years ago. Eight of these Apostles still remain, with the limestone columns rising up to 45 metres from the sea. Yet sadly, the erosion from wind and waves which helped form these magnificent structures all that time ago will also eventually destroy them, with the base of the cliffs being eroded at a rate of roughly 2cm each year. It’s possible that further erosion of the mainland will cause new structures to naturally form in their place but it’s still worth witnessing the spectacular sight of the Twelve Apostles as they stand today. Gaze at these majestic...
