The Great Ocean Road


After Sydney, we took a quick flight to Melbourne. One of the main things we wanted to do there was tour the Great Ocean Road, an Australian National Heritage listed 151 mile stretch of road along the southern coast. The road was built by returned sailors and soldiers of World War I, and is dedicated to their service. We took a daytrip along that road that included many small stops along the way at various beach lookout spots – they were all pretty but the best part of the tour was seeing the Twelve Apostles at sunset. These are actually 8 huge limestone stack formations just off the coast. They were pretty incredible and seeing them against the sunset was definitely an added bonus.
