About The 12 Apostles

Twelve Apostles

Distance: 1 km
Time: 40 minutes
Grade: Easy
Type: Return

The Twelve Apostles are one of the most iconic attractions in Australia and arguably one of the most photographed. Originally named the Sow and Piglets with Mutton Bird Island being the ‘sow’ and the other stacks her ‘piglets’. This popular tourist attraction was renamed in the 1950’s.

With only eight stacks remaining today, these magnificent sculptures continue to be world renowned. Subject to tide, wind and extreme swell conditions the rock stacks are forever being sculptured and changing.

There is a large carpark and a kiosk and toilet area. The walk to the two viewing areas is on along a sealed path and boardwalk. The path travels under the Great Ocean Road via a short tunnel.

Locals’ Tip: As this is one of the region’s most popular destinations, if you have the time, it is best to enjoy early in the day or at dusk when there are not so many other visitors present. Also at dawn and dusk penguins can sometimes be sighted along the shoreline. The local visitor centre allows visitors to borrow binoculars overnight for this purpose.

Port Campbell is the closest town to the Twelve Apostles. There is a great range of accommodation and restaurants in Port Campbell.
