Famous 12 apostles magnificent rock stacks that rise up majestically from the southern ocean on victoria's dramatic coastline. Limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10-20 million years ago. The stormy southern ocean and blasting winds winds gradually eroded the softer limestone forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 meters high were left isolated from the shore. View the 12apostles at the sunrise and sunset as they change color from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun. The 12apostles are located 275kilometres west of Melbourne approximately a four drive along the great ocean road.
