The 12 Apostles in Australia

The Twelve Apostles stacks located in Australia not far from Melbourne is the second most known symbol of Green Continent after the Opera House in Sydney. The cliffs are a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. They have been formed by erosion with the crashing waves of the Southern Ocean.

Beautiful cliffs, arches, harbors, bays and grottos, all of them attract thousands of people. Unfortunately, one of the most beautiful seashores yearly loses its symbols. The sea feels no mercy towards The Apostles: the stacks are susceptible to further erosion from the waves.



The Apostles haven't been twelve yet for a long time and one of them has recently come down. Nowadays, only eight stacks let tourists and photographers admire them. They are a remarkable sight from the cliff tops, especially at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from black to brilliant yellow under a full sun.
