On the south coast of Victoria Australia lies one of the best natural sites anywhere in the country. Known collectively as the Twelve Apostles this wonderful collection of natural limestone stacks sits on the beach at Port Campbell National Park and can be seen from miles off shore.
Lime stone is softer than most rock formations and as such the sea and weather has eroded them so that we are left with a series of impressive stacks, some as high as 140 feet.
