The Twelve Apostles is an absolute must do as part of your Great Ocean Road tour. We went in mid June and got lucky with the weather (hardly any cloud and only a light breeze). It must have been too cold for most of the tourists as the numbers were far from suffocating. Parking was ample whilst we were there... More

Port Campbell National Park is about 200 Km to the south-west of Melbourne where you can find this natural scenery (Twelve Apostles). The sea-side road (Great Ocean Road) to this place is fantastic but only in the day-time and preferably in the summer. Don't forget to stop at least for awhile at the beautiful small city of Lorne. I'm sure... More

The rock formation grouping called the Twelve Apostles is actually more like ten due to constant erosion. However, the site is still an astonishing spectacle of nature. Although it’s impossible to avoid the ever-present crowds, don't visit at 2:00pm when the hoards of tour buses descend on the national site.

The most amazing and breathtaking views of the monoliths in the ocean are even better when viewed along with the setting sun. Helicopter rides are also available for a price. An ideal place to visit as a couple.

Too many tourists taking selfies, made it very difficult to appreciate the view. But it was quite a spectacular sight - a must if you're in this area. Should think its beautiful at sun set/rise.

We went to the 12 apostles to celebrate mother's day, bringing along of course our 72 y.o. mother, and was she totally floored to experience her first ever helicopter ride! which is much cheaper if you book ahead of time! we had a ball throughout the day long tour we had (there were 6 of us!), but whether you are...

It's about 3 hours from Melbourne. Excellent drive on the Great Ocean Rd. The sunset is the best time to be there.
