Outdoor sights in Great Ocean Road
- Sort by:
The Twelve Apostles draw tens of thousands of visitors every year. Close to the Great Ocean Road, these lonely rocky stacks were formed some 20 million years ago, created as the sea gradually eroded the soft limestone cliffs between Port Campbell and Princetown. Timber boardwalks run around the cliff tops, providing viewing platforms and seats.
One of the Apostles toppled into the sea in July 2005 - bringing the number down to eight. In January 1990 a nearby formation called London Bridge - a natural arch linking the mainland to offshore rocks - also collapsed. Two tourists left stranded on the arch had to be rescued by helicopter.
