EAST COAST AUSTRALIA – PLACES TO VISIT
`Twelve Apostles ‘ are the most incredible, out of the world creations of nature on the east coast of Australia. Formed by the action of winds and waves, over thousands of years, the twelve (currently eight) limestone pillars emerging from the ocean are highly recommended tourist spot in Australia. Stunning views of the aquamarine ocean and the rocky landscape can be seeped in from the serpentine road stretching all along the cliff, which is the viewing area. Tourists also have the option of taking a chopper ride to get a bird’s eye view of the entire region. Equally enchanting is the three and a half hour drive from Melbourne, along the scenic Ocean road, amidst forests and ocean vista on one side.

Searching for a less crowded place to unwind than the famous Bondi or Manly beach in Sydney , Australia? Bronte beach is the place to head.
