Constructed before modern navigation equipment, sailors feared the coastal waters of Victoria (Australia) more than any other coastal waters in the world. The waves here are high and full of these rocks, pillars and cliffs above and below the water surface.
Coast is 320 km long. At the 120-kilometer stretch known as the Graveyard of Ships happened more than 80 major maritime disasters.
Cliffs were once part of the seabed formed by shells, mud and limestone. Roughly 25 million years ago, the seabed there were about 100 meters higher than now. When the level is lowered wodu, cliffs formed a shoreline. Stone pillars called the Twelve Apostles were once part of the land, but were cut off from him by the action of waves.
