Melbourne: Great Ocean Road

Australia's most famous coastal drive, the Great Ocean Road, is a cliffside black-top memorial to those who died in WWI, hewn from the rock by returned soldiers using picks, crowbars and shovels. Beginning just three hours' drive away from Melbourne, the road winds its way along the rugged south-western Victorian coastline between Torquay and Warrnambool and features dramatic rock formations and lush rainforests.
