Visiting the majestic Twelve Apostles, located just off the Great Ocean Road in the Port Campbell National Park, will be one of the great highlights of your holiday. 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 the stone structure known to us as the 12 Apostles. View them at sunrise and sunset as they change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun. You can do all these activities alongside long walks on some of australia’s most famous beaches. It can’t get more romantic that this.
