Collapse of well known Australian tourist landmark

Only eight of the Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria are left after the collapse of one of the rock formations on Sunday morning.

Big sandcastle! Go splat!!!

Only eight? Which eight are left? Isn’t that important?!

I don’t know whether the rock formations are named individually. I doubt it.

Hah. That needs to be in a book somewhere.

Apparently the rock formation was originally called the Sow and Piglets, and there may actually have been 17 instead of 9. There seems to be quite a bit of uncertainty about the whole thing.

This little Apostle went to limestone,
This little Apostle stayed at shore,
This little Apostle was coast reef,
This little Apostle was one.
And this little Apostle did go…
“quay quay quay*” with a big roar…

I was afraid that when I finally got to visit Australia, I’d have to venture out into all that heat and desert just to look at Ayers Rubble.

I thought this thread was going to be about the Opera House…

End times must certainly be upon us. New Hampshire’s Old Man Of The Mountain collapsed in a rock slide a couple of years ago.

You’re behind the times. It’s Ulurubble now.

(ducks and runs)

That’s nothing. I figured Paul Hogan’s face had finally collapsed from the strain of defying gravity.

I agree, Hung Mung! That’s got to be one of the best quotes ever! :smiley:
