GREAT OCEAN ROAD INFO
"WOW"...is the usual reaction to the great ocean road. Constructed by returning soldiers from the great war, this amazing and incredibly long road is a dedicated memorial to those killed in the First World War. It is Australia's greatest scenic coastline drive and the worlds largest war memorial.
The Great Ocean Road is predominately a tourist attraction and is a strip of road thats hugs the coastline which is affectionately known as the Shipwreck Coast. Along this road travellers can view the Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean via lush rainforests, beaches and cliffs composed of limestone and sandstone which over the years has receptive to extreme erosion. The road travels via Anglesea, Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Cambell. More famously the road also covers main attractions such as the limestone and sandstone rock formations of Loch Ard Gorge, The Grotto, London Arch and the Twelve Apostles.
Construction on the road began on 19 September 1919, built by approximately 3,000 returned servicemen as a war memorial for fellow servicemen who had been killed in World War I. An advance survey team progressed through dense wilderness at approximately 3 kilometres a month. Construction was done by hand; using explosives, pick and shovel, wheel barrows, and some small machinery, and was at times perilous, with several workers killed on the job; the final sections along steep coastal mountains being the most difficult to work on.
