Built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932 and dedicated to soldiers killed during World war I. The scenery is impressive, traversing rainforests, limestone and sandstone cliffs…

The road is tricky though ! It’s going to take us a while before reaching our destination : The Twelve Apostles…

What are the Twelve Apostles ? A collection of limestone stacks off the shore of a national park… But before I talk about it, let me tell you that the surroundings were not very friendly…

But, here, as incredible as it may seem, flies were more threatening than snakes. Thousands of them were waiting for us there !

  1. Hello Stéphanie,
    Ai trouvé hier sur mon bureau un joli mug avec ton logo ‘MSR’.
    Merci à toi et merci à la personne anonyme qui l’a déposé.
    Bon week-end,
    Evelyne
