This was a must see stop on our road trip along the Great Ocean Road. It is a fantastic testament and memorial to the “diggers” of a bygone era who cut this brilliant road by hand. Built by “Diggers”, members of the Army and now...More

The Great Ocean Road Memorial Archway marks the start of the Great Ocean Road. This is a magnificent road trip to take particularly mid-week to avoid the weekend traffic. One of the top 10 motorcycle roads in Australia.

We stopped here to stretch our legs and took some photos. Nice reminder that we were starting the great ocean road drive.

A must stop on the great ocean road to find out the history of the place and to pay respects to those who came before us. Lots of parking but can see it being busy in tourist season.

The Memorial Arch is a tribute to the World War One servicemen who built the Great Ocean Road. This is the third replacement but still worth a snap. There is a memorial plaque which was unveiled near the arch on the 75th Anniversary of the...More

This is a real worthy memorial to those involved in constructing the great ocean road as we know it. Lots of history on the plaques about the returning soldiers and those who never came back. lovely views to just take time out.
