The Great Ocean Road is a 243-kilometer (151-mile) stretch of road along Australia’s south-eastern coast that connects the Victorian cities of Torquay and Allansford. The road, which was built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932 and is dedicated to soldiers killed in World War I, is the world’s largest war memorial. The road is an important tourist attraction in the region, winding through varying terrain along the coast and providing access to several prominent landmarks, including the Twelve Apostles limestone stack formations.
The Great Ocean Road begins in Torquay and travels 243 kilometers west to Allansford, near Warrnambool, the road’s largest city.
The road has two lanes (one in each direction) and a speed limit that fluctuates between 50 and 100 kilometers per hour.
