Twelve Apostles - Great Ocean Road Australia Attractions

Natural limestone cliffs thousands of years in the making
12 Apostles is part of the Port Campbell National Park and is the highlight of the Great Ocean Road for me. It is indeed one of the most amazing natural landscapes in the world. They are around 70 meters high each. Actually, people use the photos of the 12 apostles to represent the Great Ocean Road.

The Twelve Apostles were originally known as the “Sow and Piglets”, the mother pig and her little offspring. The early settlers renamed this amazing rock formation after the disciples of Jesus Christ.

Fact: These are the world’s tallest limestone stacks.

Tip: Sunrise and sunset offer particularly impressive views as the Twelve Apostles change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun.
