ABOUT THE ART
The world famous Twelve Apostles are giant rock stacks that rise majestically from the Southern Ocean. They have been created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland that began 10–20 million years ago. The stormy Southern Ocean and constant blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves and sheer cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore. Although there are only a hand-full of stacks remaining in this group, they still retain there name from the late 1800s.
Sunrise and sunset offer particularly impressive views as the Twelve Apostles change colour from dark and foreboding in shadow to brilliant sandy yellow under a full sun.
