Australia's Great Ocean Road.

|Apollo Bay and Marengo Bay from Mariner's Lookout.|
The Great Ocean Road was built by Australian veterans of World War I. The road formally starts at Torquay west of Melbourne and runs along the coastline of the Southern Ocean. We spent three nights at Marengo Bay just next to Apollo Bay about midpoint in the trip. The highlight of this scenic drive are the dramatic rock formations in the ocean.

|A beach literally filled with rock towers - Darlene is helping out|
This tower must have been twelve feet high. It is a Stonehenge type mystery on how it was built.
