It's amazing how little is left of the 12 Apostles. I can remember travelling to Adelaide 40 years ago and we just stopped on the side of the road and gazed in awe at the magic of nature, it was the most exciting thing along the long stretch of road, now it has become a commercial enterprise with the coffee shop, parking area and souvenirs a go go. 

Now, one is obliged to park in the parking area and walk under a bridge and along a cemented path to the safety of wooden railings to arrive at overcrowded viewing points.

 I guess it is one way of saving the landscape and securing the area, but it took the excitement away of standing so close to the edge, that I had 40 years ago.
