Pictures Taken on February 24, 2002

 

Port Campbell National Park

Picture of coastline as we enter the park. The view only improves from here.

The Grotto

During hightide, Chris would not be standing in this massive grotto. The grotto was created by the sea pounding against the limestone cliffs for centuries.

Grotto Up Close

Check out the limestone cliff in the background.

Shipwreck Coast

Hugh standing along the coast close to the Loch Ard Gorge. Over 80 vessels came to grief along this coastline during a 40 year period early in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The Arch

Amazing Scenery

Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles are limestone rock stacks along the South-West Australia cost that have been pounded by the waves for centuries. From this view, only 7 of the apostles can be seen.

World's Best View

The Great Ocean Road is considered one of the world's most spectacular drives and Chris soaks up the view.

Hose on a Pole

Only in Australia would someone think of building such a silly thing. They must not have earthquakes. Too bad this sits along the Great Ocean Road.
