Port Campbell National Park located south-west of Melbourne in Victoria features cliffs gorges,arches, islets, and blow-holes. It lies on the famous Great Ocean Road and hosts attractions such as The Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Arch, and The Grotto.
Created by the poweful Southern Ocean eroding the soft limestone from the cliffs, this erosion leads to the formation of caves in the cliffs, which in turn become arches. When these arches collapse, they leave behind rock stacks such as the Twelve Apostles. Great examples of all stages of this erosion is represented in the park.
The flora of the park includes grasslands, heath-lands, swamps, and woodland, which support an array of plant species. There is a wide array of bird species such as emu, honeyeaters, and fairy wrens. Land based animals include echidna, the southern brown bandicoot, and swamp antechinuse.
