"GREAT OCEAN ROAD PHOTOS" Melbourne Travelogue by grantravel

Melbourne Travel Guide: 3,375 reviews and 7,607 photos

These are all photos that I took myself. It's not hard to take great photos when the scenery is so magnificent.

Bells Beach

One of Australia's most famous surfing beaches Bells Beach, famous for its world-renowned Easter Surfing Classic, is located near Torquay on the southern coast of Victoria, 71 km south-west of Melbourne.

The Twelve Apostles

The mighty Twelve Apostles are the most recognised icons of the Great Ocean Road. These giant rock stacks soar from the swirling waters of the Southern Ocean and are a central feature of the spectacular Port Campbell National Park that extends from Princetown to Peterborough.

Loch Ard Gorge

Loch Ard Gorge visitors are treated to a beautiful vista of towering cliffs, sparkling blue-green sea and a small, sandy beach. It’s hard to imagine that the drama of one of Victoria’s most tragic shipwrecks was played out at this very spot more than 120 years ago, giving a name to the gorge. Fifty-two people died after the sailing ship, the iron clipper Loch Ard, rammed into the sheer cliffs of Muttonbird Island in stormy weather on 1 June, 1878, just days from completing a three-month voyage from England to Melbourne.

London Bridge

London Bridge is on the western side of Port Campbell along the Great Ocean Road and is one of Victoria's best known land-marks.
In 1990 the centre span collapsed. Two visitors had just crossed the arch and had to be rescued from the now isolated outcrop.
