Great Ocean Road



Today we went for a trip down the Great Ocean Road. 3000 returned sailors and soldiers built the Great Ocean Road, the world’s biggest war memorial, as a monument to their fellow Australians killed at Gallipoli, at the Somme and the many other places where Australians served in the first world war. It winds around the bottom of Victoria at the southern end of mainland Australia. Some photos......

Much of the road is very close to the water and winds around mountains and cliffs.

Here the girls are on Bells Beach - a very famous surf beach. Not much surf today, but there were some poor surfers out there trying to catch a wave.....brrrr..


We went only as far as Lorne where we had lunch and a bit of fun on the beach. Here the girls were running across and jumping...had to work off lunch somehow.We stopped at Airey's Inlet to visit the lighthouse....

Tomorrow we are off to the Yarra Valley to visit some vineyards....hic....
