This series of 45-metre-tall limestone pillars that shoot up from the Southern Ocean are undoubtedly the signature sight to see along the Great Ocean Road. Located just outside the small coastal village of Princetown, the dramatic collection of giant rocks are the result of coastal-cliff erosion across millions of years.

The prime vantage point to look over the Apostles is from the eastern viewing platform at dusk or dawn, when the formations and surrounding cliff faces glow in the soft light. Make time to climb down the Gibson Steps to the beach east of the Apostles and get up close and personal with Gog and Magog, two further offshore stacks.
