Sightseeing Flight To The Twelve Apostles

Anich • 3 minutes read • October 22nd, 2016
After our walk along 

the Great Ocean Road

, we took a sightseeing trip by plane to the 

Twelve Apostles

.
The Twelve Apostles is a group of limestone rocks in the Indian Ocean. Their appearance and proximity to each other made it a very popular sight.
Originally, the place was called "Pig and piglets", but in the middle of the last century, the name was changed to the "

Twelve Apostles

" to attract more tourists :)
All this despite the fact it is a grouping of only nine rocks! But now, only eight are left because in 2005 a rock cracked due to erosion.

The "lower" view also deserves attention, of course.
