The 12 Apostles
These famous limestone structures are a natural marvel – they tower 45m above the ocean, just off the shore along Great Ocean Road. There are only eight left today because the others have collapsed due to erosion, but that hasn’t stopped them from being one of the most photographed sights in Australia. Visit the Twelve Apostles Centre for history on the area before taking the Great Ocean Walk along the coastline. The best time to visit is at sunrise or sunset, when the apostles turn bright yellow and fairy penguins wander out onto the beach.
