What a magnificent sight the remaining seven Apostles make. The sea breaking in the morning sun made the view so much better. There are only seven left, so I would recommend seeing them soon given that London Bridge is one that has most recently fallen into Bass Strait.

This is a collection of limestone stacks. It was first named "The Sow and the Piglets" which was later renamed Apostles for tourist purpose. We took a helicopter ride over them. It was a lovely view. Even from the land the view was spectacular.

Buses ferrying hordes of tourists, people waiting to take photographs in front of sights... Just one of those typical must-see attractions along the Great Ocean Road. Even though you have to contend with the multitude who are there to snap a selfie in front of the remnants of the eroded land mass, you will still stop by while travelling along... More

Day trip along a small section of The Great Ocean Road to visit the Twelve Apostles was well worth the drive, even on a cold, wet, wintery day. Beautiful views, took lots & lots of pictures. My first visit, but it won't be my last!

Im sure you have seen it in pictures. Worth a visit if in melbourne but it is a really long day (12hrs round trip). Best to do it in a tour package.

These limestone, weathered stacks off the Victoria coastline are a spectacular site, even though there are only 8 of them now after one collapsed in 2005! I am pleased I made the effort, although there were times during the many hours driving from Melbourne when I did question whether it was going to be worth the journey. The viewing places... More

This definitely is worth the drive down the great ocean road for. Be sure to go down the gibson steps which is just around the corner. Take a windbreaker as the winds are very strong along the coast.

We went there when the weather was not so great, and the wind was maybe around 100km per hour. However despite all the terrible, the place is beautiful and 12 Apostles looked stunning. Definitely the highlight of the Great Ocean Road trip.

It's so cold and windy yet the view is to die for. Very beautiful both during sunset and sunrise. Only 8 are remaining now but still have the stunning views.
