Travelling the Great Ocean Road
There is no time like now for checking out this magnificent section of Victoria’s coastline. The Great Ocean Road was added to Australia’s National Heritage list in 2011. Unfortunately, due to natural erosion by strong winds and rough seas, parts of the natural limestone stacks and archways have already crumbled away.
The Great Ocean Road was built by returned soldiers after World War I as a war memorial between 1919 and1936. Here is showcased some of our most spectacular coastline runs, extending through several national parks. Stretching from Torquay to Warrnambool, near Portland, the road is a popular route for tourists and there are some excellent walking tracks, making this trip perfect for hikers and campers.
