The Twelve Apostles are world-recognised icons of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. These giant rock stacks soar from the swirling waters of the Southern Ocean and are a central feature of the spectacular Port Campbell National Park, only 12 km east of Port Campbell. The dramatic and imposing limestone cliffs that are the backdrop to the Apostles tower up to 70 m, while the tallest of the rock stacks is around 45 m high. While anytime of the day provides great views, sunrise and sunset are particularly impressive for the blazing hues created, and are times that are especially popular with photographers.
The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are eight apostles left, the ninth one of the stacks collapsed dramatically.
