The Great Ocean Road in Australia is about 270km long in Victoria, starting at Torquay near Geelong in the east and ending at Warrnambool in the west. The road was built by 3000 returned servicemen from WWI, known locally as 'Diggers', as a war memorial to the fallen of the war. Today the Great Ocean Road is better known for the Twelve Apostles, a series of 8 limestone stacks that stand just of shore near to Port Campbell. The Twelve Apostles are just one of many dramatic rock and coastal formations that can be found on the Great Ocean Road. Others include:
- Loch Ard Gorge
- Razorback at Loch Ard Gorge
- Bay of Islands
- Island Arch
- The Grotto
- Gibson Steps, the Beach and Twelve Apostles from the beach
- London Arch
- Bay of Martyrs
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
Road: By car or coach from either Peterborough or Warrnambool along the Great Ocean Road. Most of the scenic flights in the region use the Twelve Apostles in their marketing. Coaches will only stop at the Twelve Apostles visitors centre.
