The 12 Apostles and the Great Ocean Road
left the next morning and headed west along the Great Ocean Road, an
amazing drive which is something like the Oregon Coast Highway. I'd
read a lot of literature claiming that the Great Ocean Road was the finest
ocean drive in the world and yes, it's a nice drive certainly, but nothing
tops the Oregon Coast Highway.
Anyway, the most scenic part of the Great Ocean Road is a section called
the "12 Apostles," with the Apostles being a series of sea stacks that dot
Itís a beautiful area and it was a glorious day, and I decided that the
Apostles alone were worth a visit to Victoria.
