GREAT OCEAN RD BEACH

The Great Ocean Road is an Australian National Heritage listed 243-kilometre stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool. The road was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932, and is the world's largest war memorial; dedicated to casualties of World War I.

It is an important tourist attraction in the region, which winds through varying terrain alongside the coast, and provides access to several prominent landmarks; including the nationally significant Twelve Apostles rock formations. The Twelve Apostles is a collection of miocene limestone rock stacks jutting from the water in Port Campbell National Park, between Princetown and Peterborough on the Great Ocean Road.

  1. Cool. Looks like you're shooting from inside a cave? Is that right?

  3. It is the most beautiful long and open stretch of ocean views imaginable.

  4. This looks like a view at Port Campbell, but I could be wrong. It is many years since I last travelled the Great Ocean Road. It is so scenic, but excessively busy in summer.
