The Great Ocean Road is a 243 km (151 miles) stretch of coastal road in the south of Victoria. The road runs between the small towns of Torquay and Allansford. It was built between 1919 and 1932 by returned soldiers and is dedicated to the memory of those killed during World War I, the road is the largest war memorial in the world.
The Great Ocean Road passes through some of the most unique and varying landscapes in Australia. Over its short 243 km you can see coastal cliffs and rock formations, rain-forest and beaches. Due to its attractiveness and its closeness to Melbourne (about an hours drive) it is a very popular stop for tourists. Because of that they have to remind drivers on which side of the two laned road they should drive.
But for now enjoy the rain-forest scenery of Hopetoun Falls.
