Celebrating 100 Years of the Great Ocean Road!

Celebrating 100 Years of the Great Ocean Road

Today marks the day of exactly 100 years since construction began on the worlds largest war memorial: the Great Ocean Road.

On the 19th of September 1919 using nothing but hand tools and dynamite, 3,000 men, including 2,700 returned soldiers began work on what became one of the largest engineering feats the world had ever seen.

To celebrate, we’ve begun putting together a complete travel guide of the Great Ocean Road – you can check it out here:

We plan to continually improve our guide to the Great Ocean Road. At the moment, it’s quite basic, although be sure to keep coming back over the next few months as we cover every corner from Torquay to Allansford. From surf beaches to cliff edges, ancient dinosaur sites and rain forests, it can all be found on the Great Ocean Road and you can read about it here!
