Eco-Tour the Great Ocean Road:
Wildlife, Scenery, Dramatic Coastline.
Before the Great Ocean Road was built in the early 1900's, the only access to the small coastal towns southwest of Melbourne was by ship or by bush track. On a foggy night in June 1878, the sailing ship Loch Ard, almost to Melbourne after a 3 month trip from England, ran aground at Loch Ard Gorge, near the Twelve Apostles. Only two of the 54 people aboard survived. What is called "the Shipwreck Coast" had once again lived up to its name. In 1919, 3,000 returned servicemen cut the Great Ocean Road from the coastline and cliffs between Lorne and Warrnambool using only hand tools and explosives. It took three years to build and is a memorial to those killed in World War 1.The Great Ocean Road today is one of the major attractions from Melbourne and includes the Cape Otway National Park rainforest and wildlife experience with the coastal scenery of Loch Ard Gorge, London Arch and the Twelve Apostles.
See it all in one day.
