Twelve Apostles - Visitor Facility

Pei Xun
The apostles were formed by wind and waves erosion, cutting into cliffs to form caves that turn into arches, which ultimately collapse to become high stacks. Initially known as the Sow and Piglets, it was renamed Twelve Apostles recently in 1922, although there were only nine stacks to begin with. Now there are eight after one collapsed in 2005. We were told sunset is the best time to be at the apostles, but unfortunately couldn’t catch any due to the cloudy skies. However, we stayed past nightfall and managed to catch some returning penguins (at about 8.30pm), although it was extremely far away and the penguins appeared more like moving black spots. Probably best to get some night vision binoculars next time.
