Australia: 12 Apostles and Great Ocean Road – VIDEO

Published: 8.5.2018
Great Ocean Road. One of the most popular trips from Melbourne to the east. 275 kilometers from the city, there is one of the most iconic places in all Australia. 12 Apostles standstone rocky towers.

Imagine huge sandstone columns surrounded by strong waves. This is how 12 Apostles came to be and this is how they will perish one day. There are only 8 of them left now. The nineth collapsed in the year 2005. It is very likely new will arise in sandsone cliffs. Yet the count doesn't matter. Apostles, about 45 meters tall each, is a sight to see. Should you come here during the sundown or sunset, the vista gets even better. Moreover, you can pay here for a short helicopter scenic flight to see the apostles from a different angle. Also, you will see several sandstone arches and caves which may become sandstone towers on one day. The apostles.

The entirety of Great Ocean Road  is situated between the towns of Torquay and Allansford with the total lenght of 243 kilometers. You can make it in 3 days without breaking too much sweat. Should you have more time at your hands, you can set out to enjoy a trek which takes three days. Should you have more time, try some other of beautiful treks .

Should you be interested in making long walks, try Great Ocean Walk. It connects walk trails. The trail is 104 kilometers long and it will lead you to 12 Apostles.

It is 9 p.m. Streets are almost empty yet you are in Tasmania's largest city which is home to almost quarter of million people. The reason is simple - the city is so vast nobody stays in downtown in the evening. However, it is quite lively and busy during the day. Still, this is a noise and business of a quiet harbor city where is no reason to hurry. Apart from rising number of tourists, there are no radiant tomorrows for the city iteslf.

When I tought Hobart there was absolutely nothing going on in Hobart, Launceston at first seemed even worse. Soon I found out this sleepy town has many interesting nooks and can be quite interesting. Nice houses, brick factories, churches, brewery, a river full of pelicans, and a large city park which holds Japanese macaques. Moreover, Tamar Valley, a vineyard area, is just around the corner.
