Everyone in the whole world should be able to drive the Great Ocean Road. It rugged. It winds up and down and twists back and forth lining the ocean all the way from Portland, through Warnambool, through Port Campbell National Park, Apollo Bay and Otway National Park to Geelong. Nearly at the end of it, we learned that the road had been built by a Citizen initiative to put World War One heroes/veterans back to work. These men were hired to build the road. It took three years and a series of very organized camps complete with vegetable gardens and complete living facilities, but it turned out to be a wonder of the world. We all can enjoy it today and it is truly a wonder that separates the South Ocean waves from the sharp rugged granite hills. Think Obama Economic Recovery initiative. Put folks to work building things that benefit the greater population . . . like building roads and infrastructure that serve us all for generations to come.
Heading toward Melbourne, this truly is a beautiful road with amazing little beach towns on the left and magnificent cliffs and beach scenes to the right. It is like nothing available anywhere else.. . then finally, expressways appeared again and Melbourne!
Again, I hope the photos illustrate it better than I can describe.
