We are so fortunate to live in a country that has such an amazing coast line.
Created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the mainland beginning 10-20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 metres high were left isolated from the shore.

The base of the stacks continue to erode at a rate of 2cm per year.

This image was so dark when I downloaded it that you could hardly make out the landscape.
