The Twelve Apostles in Australia
Want to see more? Head on over to The Twelve Apostles’ location page, as well as the #12apostles hashtag.
The 12 Apostles are a collection of rugged limestone rock stacks that rise up from the Southern Ocean on Victoria, Australia’s coastline. They were created by continual erosion of the coastal cliffs caused by the harsh weather conditions of the Southern Ocean.
Over millions of years, they have transformed from caves in the cliffs into arches that eventually collapsed to become nine 45 meter rock stacks. Today, there are only eight stacks remaining due to further erosion from waves that continue to threaten their existence. If given the chance, head to Australia to see these beautiful sleeping giants before they are gone!
