I would recommend visiting this site. It is nice to know the reason why this road was built. I would guess that some people who do stop to take a selfie and photo opportunity I don’t would still have no idea as to why this...More

A wonderful drive along the stunning coast till you get to Warrnambool. Plenty of places to stop and take photos. Don't rush, just take your time.
