Down in the 'business end' of the Great Ocean Road, the twelve apostles are probably its most famous and busiest attraction, but are no less spectacular in the flesh (so to speak!) than they are in the numerous travel brochures and guides. The sound of the helicopter with its overpriced joy flights just adds to the atmosphere. If you have the time, drive on a little further to Loch Ard Gorge and the Bay of Martyrs, which are quieter but just as magical, especially when the sea mist is rolling in and you can almost hear the creaking tall ships crashing on the rocks below. . .
