Wanderlust Postcards - 12 Apostles

Destination: The Twelve Apostles, Victoria (Australia)

Standing tall, surrounded by the roaring ocean, are the intriguing limestone rocks at Port Campbell National Park. I feel so lucky to have seen these iconic rocks, created by the gradual erosion and harsh conditions of the ocean. Currently, only seven rocks remain.

I was there a day before New Year, waiting for the sun to set down the western horizon. We drove from Melbourne, along Great Ocean Road, enjoying the stunning scenery, velvety green forests and sheep grazing in sprawling meadows.

It was past 7 pm when we reached 12 Apostles. Cold winds blew strong as we waited for the sun to dip down. It was worth the effort, the sunset was mesmerising. In between hoards of photographers and cameras I managed to click few shots from my mobile phone.

It's amazing how the limestones seem to change color as the sun slowly sets. Even the foliage turns into kind of yellowish green.

That's quite a sight, isn't it? Four of the remaining seven limestone rocks.


  1. Wow! Great Ocean Drive -- I've been wanting to do it and see the apostles and the beaches and the all the rock formations along the way. Sometime in the next couple of years, hopefully!
