The Twelve Apostles are a collection of limestone rock stacks popping out of the water in Port Campbell National Park, between Princetown and Peterborough on the Great Ocean Road. The apostles were formed by erosion, gradually eroded by the weather conditions the soft limestone formed caves in the cliffs, that then became arches, which collapsed, leaving rock stacks up to 45 meters high. The formation became known as the Twelve Apostles, even though there were never twelve stacks.
Driving along the Great Ocean Road, I didn`t expect to see other beautiful natural wonders like the London Arch, Loch Ard Gorge etc and Twelve Apostles was the one I was looking out for. When we first saw the Twelve Apostles, the light wasn`t the best. It was still impressive, but I wasn`t blown away like I was expecting to. However, we had the opportunity to pass by again two days later late morning and with that light I did have the feeling of being in awe.
Quick Note: you`re not alone here, on the rest of the Great Ocean Road, the stops we made were never crowded, however the 12 Apostles are the main highlight for many and everyone wants their moment.
