Australia’s Great Ocean Road tops the world’s coastal drives with its dramatic coastline from Melbourne to Adelaide. Rough waves and wind relentlessly beat against the harsh cliffs and leave behind battle wounds of bizarre limestone rock formations like The Grotto, London Bridge and the pictured Twelve Apostles.
Twelve Apostles is a bit of a misnomer as the stacks continue to erode and in 2005, the closest one crumbled leaving us with eight. No matter the number, their presence is powerful like a fleet of ships protecting the land. Try to get there just before sunset to watch the light sandy structures morph into ominous figures cloaked in shadows.
