Great Ocean Road

Twelve Apostles

The Great Ocean Road is one of Victoria’s most famous attractions and a destination that should be on everybody’s list. The road begins in Torquay, and stretches for 243 kilometres before reaching the end of the road at Allansford, near Warrnambool. The Great Ocean Road was built between 1919 and 1932 by returned servicemen and dedicated to soldiers killed in World War I. It is actually the world’s largest war memorial which is an interesting fact not many people are aware of when they think of The Great Ocean Road.

Well known landmarks to lookout for when travelling along the Great Ocean Road include Bells Beach, Apollo Bay, the Otway Ranges and Port Campbell National Park which is where you will find the famous Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and the London Arch, which was originally known as the London Bridge. There are some great day tours from Melbourne that travel along the Great Ocean Road as well as extended tours. If you have your own transport then a leisurely road trip is a great way to experience this famous road.
