Mt Defiance, Great Ocean Rd “I remember a fancy coming over me that I could have remained at that spot all the rest of my life; but this solitary desire was but temporary as it was never intended that man should live alone.”
There’s a bit of mystery about this famous Australian icon. Originally the Twelve Apostles were known as the Sow & Piglets, but at some point the name changed and no one really knows the reason why. It is however a bit of a misnomer as there were only actually nine limestone stacks at this point.
Then around twelve years ago, one of these collapsed due to erosion over millions of years from the weather and ocean. Today only 8 Apostles remain.
