    Survivor guide: Visiting the Twelve Apostles in Australia


    Located in the Port Campbell National Park, the Twelve Apostles are gigantic limestone rock stacks jutting out from the Southern Ocean. The Twelve Apostles form part of Victoria’s notoriously rugged and dangerous coastline and it’s important to be adequately prepared for your trip. Here is Accident Advice Helpline’s survivor guide.

    Slipping, tripping or falling on holiday

    The coastline can be a dangerous place and it’s essential to take precautions when it comes to slipping, tripping or falling, as a slip or trip on the jagged rocks could have serious consequences. Always ensure that you wear appropriate footwear with adequate grip such as hiking boots and avoid wearing flip-flops.

    Protecting against the sun

    The temperatures in Victoria, Australia vary greatly and some regions can be a lot cooler than others despite its small geographic area. In summer however, the temperatures reach up to 32°c meaning that it is essential to take proper protection against the sun. Bring a high SPF sun lotion with you and plenty of water to combat the effects of dehydration. Dehydration is not only dangerous in itself but can create sensations of nausea and vomiting, which could increase the chances of a nasty slip, trip or fall.

    Bushfires

    Although uncommon, Visit Melbourne recommends that anyone wishing to travel to the Twelve Apostles should be familiar with what to do in the event of a bushfire. If you suspect a bushfire to have broken out, leave the area immediately and do not wait to see if everything will be ok. Warn the local fire brigade as soon as possible.

    Thank you for reading Accident Advice Helpline’s survivor guide to the Twelve Apostles. If you’re planning on travelling to the Twelve Apostles, Accident Advice Helpline wishes you a safe and pleasant trip. However, if things go awry, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help.
