Reviews about Twelve Apostles

Reviewed on 27 May 2020

十二門徒石柱是大洋路上最著名的景點之一,坐落於坎貝爾港國家公園內。 因最初發現時,形態各異的十三根巨大石柱矗立於南冰洋洶湧的波濤之中,讓人很容易聯想到聖經中追隨耶穌基督的十二門徒,故得名“十二門徒”。這一帶的海岸都是沙岩結構,黃色的沙岩。好象墨爾本火車站所用的黃色沙岩就是類似這種材質。沙岩結構的海岸經過千百年的風浪衝擊後會形成斷裂和空洞,這一帶的所謂石拱門ARCH,其實就是千百年風浪衝擊形成的,然後在某一天突然斷裂,然後就形成了獨立的一塊岩石,最後就可能形成了這壯觀的十二門徒景色。就如當年突然斷裂的倫敦橋一般,本來是連在一起的海岸,某一年突然斷開了,可能多少年後被風浪衝擊的越來越小,最後也變成了一塊大岩石聳立。十二門徒最早是由正好十二塊獨立岩石組成的海岸景色,於是人們就以聖經中耶穌的十二個門徒的故事來命名了他們。不過,經過了這麼多年來大自然的風吹雨打和腐蝕破壞,如今只剩下了六個岩石了,可能還會繼續減少,所以大家要趕緊去觀賞。但是依照海岸的自然風化和斷裂原理,似乎以後萬年後又有可能形成新的十二門徒也未有不可呢。

Starting from Autway, we passed through Grenale, then up Lavers Hill, where the fog shrouded like a fairyland and continued north through Grenale for about 5 kilometres, bypassing Red Johanna, where dense forests and blue coastlines loomed in sight and were beautiful. This beach is Johanna Beach, which has a reputation outside, and continues to march into narrow and lush cliffs. The highway crosses the coastal cliffs of Princetown Town and Peterborough to Campbell Harbor National Park, the famous 12-disciple Rock. Campbell Harbor National Park has a large parking lot. It passes through a bridge hole and then walks along the plank road for five minutes to the Twelve Apostles Rock. The Twelve Apostles Rock was first formed at the bottom of the sea. It was a heap of rocks left behind by a retreating headland in the sea. After a long period of erosion by sea water and sea breeze, it corroded caves. Now only seven of the Twelve Apostles have been seen. In a few years, nature will destroy these sceneries in the same way. These rocks, carved like human faces by nature, stand alone in the sea in various shapes. It is said that the tallest disciple is 45 meters tall. Helicopters are the best choice for close viewing. They circle over rocks from different angles for 10 minutes, including 12 disciples rock, LochArd Gorge, Sentinel Rock and Port Campbell. They also send a DVD for $145. Helicopters are right behind the parking lot of the observation deck. Generally, it takes three to four days to appreciate the scenic spots along the Ocean Road. There is a classic route along the Ocean Road on foot, starting from the Bay of Apollo and reaching the Twelve-disciple Rock all the way. There are also 8-day long-distance routes, which require some perseverance. Transportation: About 5 kilometers north along Grenale, through Johanna Beach, to Twelve Apostles. Scenic spots: Gibson ladder beach, Rockard Canyon, Port Campbell, beach, cliff, sea water are all different enjoyments, the seaside wind is strong, it is recommended to carry clothes windproof. Activities: There's a hiking trail on a coastal cliff near the parking lot cafe. It's a good choice to walk to wreckBeach. Food: Have a cup of coffee in the picturesque town of Princetown or a fresh and delicious seafood meal in the seaside town of Apollo Bay. The nearest restaurant is the cafe in the parking lot. The pastries are good. is part of Group Limited, one of the world's leading providers of travel services.
