The Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is a 243-kilometer (151-mile) stretch of road along the southeastern coast of Australia, located in the state of Victoria. The road was built by returning World War I veterans between 1919 and 1932, and it winds along the coast, passing through picturesque towns and offering stunning views of the Southern Ocean and the rugged cliffs of the Bass Coast. The road is a popular tourist destination, known for its natural beauty and landmarks such as the Twelve Apostles, a group of limestone stacks that rise up from the ocean.
