The Great Ocean Road is a 243 km coastal road in the south of Victora. It was built between 1919 and 1932 by returning soldiers from WWI whom ended up creating the world’s largest war memorial. It also has quite stunning ocean views and is now one of the main tourist attractions in Australia.

Traveling further west, a collection of 8 limestone stacks reach out from the water to form the Twelve Apostles. Until one of them collapsed in 2005, then there were only 7.
