This section of the Great Ocean Road is the most photographed and visited. Here the unrelenting sea has battered the ancient limestone coast leaving a spectacular series of rock stacks, known as the Twelve Apostles. Currently, however, there are only six Apostles which is a testament to the process of erosion and undercutting that is ongoing and that we are absolutely assured of loosing more in the future (the last to fall was in 2005). New Apostles are also probable and the undercutting of the large promontory, from which platform number two stands, is bound to be the next addition. Visit the Apostles any time of day but especially coordinate your schedule for a sunrise or sunset viewing as it is absolutely magical, weather permitting. The Apostles are easily accessible from the Great Ocean Road where one can find plenty of accommodation and restaurants in Port Cambell just 15kms away. There is also a B&B 5km inland of the welcome center called the “Twelve Apostles Motel and Country Retreat”. The woman who runs it is friendly and offers country style cooking from her kitchen.
