After inflicting my little rant on you earlier this morning I thought I would follow it with a photo post of something much nicer*.
The picture below was taken in 2008 when we were travelling home after a few weeks in the Flinders Ranges. We decided to take the long way home and turned down the Great Ocean Road for a bit of sightseeing.
The Great Ocean Road is 250-ish km of one of the most picturesque drives you can do in Victoria.
It was built by returned soldiers from WWI between 1919 and 1932 and is the worlds largest war memorial.
Much of it follows directly along the western coastline of Victoria, and there are many places to stop and marvel at the amazing views of rock piles standing out in the turbulent Southern ocean.
It is also known as the shipwreck coast, and is where the well-known wreck of the Loch Ard occurred in 1880.
The road is a hugely popular attraction to overseas visitors, and is the only place I have ever been that has the need for signs at each car park exit reminding the driver which side of the road Australians drive on.
*Nicer, except for the little sign on that post. It is a representation of a person who strayed too close to the edge and is falling to their death….
