The #PortCampbellNationalPark is famous for its unique limestone formations like the Gibson Steps, caused by natural erosion.
The Twelve Apostles are limestone cliffs up to 60 metres high, standing in the sea and an iconic landmark of the region. Sunrise and sunset make the rocks glow in the surf. An truly amazing play of nature. They are for sure one of the greatest highlights of the Great Ocean Road tour.
The London Arch is a natural limestone rock arch in the Port-Campbell National Park in Australia and very close to the great ocean road. The rock was eroded by natural erosion, so that it formed a double arch until 1990. This formation reached up to the coast and was called London Bridge because of its appearance.
This region is mostly known because of its unique limestone formations above the sea level…but there is something hiding below the surface of the everlasting ocean. The Arches Marine Sanctuary is a 19 to 25 labyrinth of towering limestone canyons, caves, arches and walls 19 to 25 meters below the water surface.
The under water foundation is the optimal habitat for brilliantly coloured seaweeds and sponges which grow here. Are you ready for an awesome #diving adventure?
