Gawking at the Apostles

Down here at the magnificent Twelve Apostles, one of Australia's most beloved natural wonders, there's nothing between you and Antartica but the mighty Southern Ocean, a vast expanse of frigid water, a bunch of great white sharks and hundreds and hundreds of shipwrecks.
The Apostles, about four hours' west of Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road, formed as the limestone cliffs eroded to form caves which in turn became arches until they collapsed to create what is now one of the most breathtaking views in the country.
The drive is a bit like the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island: best to be a passenger rather than a driver, so you can gawk to your heart's content.
