What travelers say:

Hundreds of millions of small rocks were accumulated and gradually formed, and then buried on the seabed until the strong tide and wind finally exposed the rocks to the water surface, becoming the famous twelve apostle rocks. Because they happen to resemble the twelve apostles of Jesus in number and form, they are named after the twelve apostles in the Bible story.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Twelve Apostles are located in the Port Campbell National Park on the Great Ocean Road in Australia and are one of the great attractions along the Great Ocean Road. They are rock stacks erecting from the sea. They were originally part of the coastline and were gradually separated by the waves and wind. Because the original twelve stacks were reminiscent of the twelve apostles who followed Jesus, they were named The Twelve Apostles. Due to the continuous erosion of the waves, only seven of the twelve are left. On the way to the Twelve Apostles, there is a well-known staircase known as the Gibson Steps, which is cut from the cliff and leads down to the beach.
