I mentioned the archway in a previous review. And this story exhibit will really bring to life the hard work that was done to build the road. And with free entry, you really shoudnt ignore this little gem.

If you stopped at the end of the Great Ocean Road, and asked all the drivers WHY the road was built in the first place, I bet you 75% of people would have no idea. Don’t be that 75%. Visit here for 10 minutes and...More
