Twelve Apostles – Great Ocean Road, Australia
Running for over 150 miles along Southeastern Australia is one of the most scenic roads in the world. Don’t worry fellow Americans! I know Highway 1 through Big Sur is beautiful as well, but with a name like “Great Ocean Road” how can you argue? Besides I said “one” of the most scenic. You see it hugs the coast most of the way while traversing through small towns and secluded beaches. As a surfer, it is the ultimate surf check road. The ocean storms here blow up straight from Antarctica without anything blocking their path therefore creating some of the largest waves in the world. This raw power is evident when viewing the many rock formations carved out of the limestone cliffs along the way. This amazing formation is known as the “Twelve Apostles” and located about 4 hours into the drive. Not quite sure why they still call them the twelve apostles because there are only eight left. The one in the foreground fell about a month before we arrived. So get there soon or else you will drive four hours to get to the spot formerly known as “The Twelve Apostles”!
