The Twelve Apostles

A much anticipated part of our GOR trip was the chance to see the Twelve Apostles. Within Port Campbell National Park, Victoria there are some amazing rock formations and landscape with the Twelve Apostles being the most iconic.

We had a mixed bag of cloudy and showery weather but lucky for us the sun shone and it stayed dry long enough for us to walk out to the viewing platforms and marvel at these wonders of nature.

It ws extremely windy and the ocean was rough with huge waves battering the cliffs and rocky outcrops. These weather conditions only served to illustrate in front of our eyes the dynamic forces of Mother Nature, truly awesome.

Whilst the Twelve Apostles get all the publicity, there are a number of other rock formations including, the Loch and Gorge, London Bridge and the Bay of Islands, all of which, in our view are equally impressive.

We continued our journey to Port Fairy and our next overnight stop. We arrived in Port Fairy early evening with enough light to wander around town and stroll along the little harbour ending up at yet another pretty beach. We stayed until the light started to fade and, hungry for supper headed back to the camper for an indoor picnic!
