the 12 apostles coastline

shipwreck coastline of south eastern victoria

Your great ocean road tour includes the 12 apostles coastline, one that is truly awe inspiring. Your great ocean road tour itinerary visits amazing rock formations such as Gog, Magog, 12 Apostles, Mutton Bird Island, Pudding Basin Rock, The Razorback, Island Archway, Bakers Oven and London Bridge.

 

Created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10-20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. 

The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore. View the 12 Apostles at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun.
