The Twelve Apostles at Port Campbell National Park


One place that truly exudes God’s splendor! 



The Twelve Apostles is a collection of Miocene limestone rock stacks protruding from the water in Port Campbell National Park, between Princetown and Peterborough.
 

It’s not just a tourist place, but a breathtaking experience, which is sure to stay with you all your life. The moment I entered the Port Campbell National Park, I was filled with awe and wonder. It was all misty and cloudy, and cold, too. However, the beauty of the place was such that we stopped feeling cold in a while. I just wanted to soak in as much as my eyes could see.


The tour bus starts from Melbourne, covers all the cities on the Great Ocean Road, which is an Australian National Heritage, 243-kilometre long road situated along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool.




Although tour packages are always more convenient when it comes to exploring a new place, renting a cab is a better idea to visit a place like this. Let me warn you that your tour guide will not allow you to stay at a spot for more than 10 minutes (which is insufficient). My sister and I got a scolding from our tour guide for halting at the Twelve Apostles longer than the time allotted. The experience taught me that it’s wiser to customize your trip rather than following a planned itinerary.

  1. I'm glad you got to see the 12 Apostles although it was for a very short time. If possible rent a car and take your time a bit more. You'll find there is so much to see. There are over 300 things to do on our website and Great Ocean Road App.
