Water, Land, Infrastructure | Great Ocean Road

Yesterday I had my first glimpses of the Southern Ocean from the Great Ocean Road (B100). This remarkable infrastructure stretches for 243-kilometre (151 mi) between the cities of Torquay and Warrnambool and was built by returned World War I soldiers between 1919 and 1932. It is considered the world war largest memorial and also know as Surf Coast. Bells Beach, home of the world's longest-running surfing competitionthe Rip Curl Pro Surf & Music Festival, is located at its Eastern end, near the town of Jan Juc and Torquay.
