This memorial commemorates the establishment of the great ocean road and pays tribute to the people who built it. Great for a picture

To commemorate those who risked so much to build this beautiful Great Ocean road, this Archway has been made in their honor. It is good for a short stopover, do visit the beach as well, as it is beautiful

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.

Depending on which way to drive the Great Ocean Road this is either the start of end of the drive proper. It has a memorial plaque to Australian Service men and women as well as being the gateway to this fantastic stretch of highway which...More

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.
