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 densely populated east coast contrasts with the barren red center, the snowy mountains with the desert, and the white skin of immigrant Europeans contrasts with the dark skin of the Aboriginals.
