Twelve Apostles, Port Campbell

#1 of 333 in Nature in Victoria
Must see · Geologic Formation · Lookout
Sculpted by harsh winds and steady waves of the Southern Ocean, Twelve Apostles includes a group of eight limestone stacks--the ninth collapsed in 2005--that emerge from the shallows of the marine national park. The tallest of the crumbling pillars rises up to the height of 50 m (160 ft). The underwater scenery is even more dramatic, featuring some deep sloping reefs with habitats of kelp forests and colorful sponge gardens. These impressive rock stacks are arguably most beautiful when bathed in early morning light, when little penguins can be seen nesting in caves below them.

  • Somewhat over rated but you can’t not see them. There are a few different lookouts and it’s worth taking the path with the stairs for a different perspective.  more »
