Surf Coast Excursion | Victoria, Australia

I climbed into a small tour bus with six other tourists in Melbourne early in the morning to begin a journey via the Great Ocean Road, winding 151 miles along this dramatic coastline known as the Surf Coast. The roadway was built between 1919 and 1932 by soldiers returning after World War I, and was dedicated to those who died in that War; as such, the road is the world’s largest war memorial. The road winds through varying terrain, including gentle farmland in the inland areas, and more rugged terrain along the coast. Our trip ended at the magnificent 12 Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of Port Campbell National Park.
