Limestone stacks and turbulent sea waters

Sofia leads us this week with the topic of “Water in motion”. And just in time, I together with my family, went to the Great Ocean Road to take them for a sight seeing roadtrip. I am also linking this to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere and for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday

First stop was the Twelve Apostles, which is one of the most well-known attractions along the Great Ocean Road and the highlight of most road trips. Located within Port Campbell National Park, just minutes from the town of Port Campbell, the Twelve Apostles are a series of limestone stacks that rise out of the ocean. They are mesmerizing to watch.

Despite being named the Twelve Apostles, only nine of these majestic formations remain standing along the Great Ocean Road. Nevertheless, their beauty remains undiminished.

Loch Ard Gorge stands out as one of the most picturesque destinations along this road. It is nestled within Port Campbell National Park close to the Twelve Apostles,

London Bridge, a stunning offshore rock formation was once featured as a natural bridge until its collapse in 1990, leaving two tourists stranded but thankfully unharmed. So at this time, climbing atop is no longer possible, but it still remains an intriguing stop for visitors and tourists.

The Grotto’s dramatic formation ranks it among the top attractions along the Great Ocean Road, offering serene sea views and natural landscapes. Accessible via a wooded staircase, the Grotto reveals smooth boulders and tranquil rock pools, inviting visitors to explore its unique beauty up close.

Port Campbell town was where we had our late lunch.

    The motion of water, captured in the present and etched on those rocks over thousands of years.

    Totally unfair that you’d been there just in time for the challenges Teresa! Great Ocean Road is one of the most glorious places I’ve ever been and one of my favorite memories. Thanks for the gorgeous reminder!

      It is a long drive so I am able to come here only when I have visitors from overseas. Thanks for the comment Tina.

    Thanks for taking me back to the Great Ocean Road with your wonderful images Teresa. I was there last year and it was wonderful and raining. That didn’t stop us. The coffee is great in Melbourne.

    1. Teresa says:

      That is what they always say about the coffee culture in Melbourne, glad you agree. And yes we were also there one time in the rain but who cares, right! Thanks Anne
