Artist's Description

The newly erected memorial, to mark 75th anniversary of the world famous road and tourist route, stands proudly beside the arch at Eastern View, on The Great Ocean Road.

The Great Ocean Road, which stretches along the South Eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Geelong and Warrnambool, is in itself the world’s biggest war memorial. It was built between World War I and World War II by returned servicemen in honour of their fallen comrades. The road took 16 years to build and it was all done by hand using picks, shovels and dynamite. The main gate, a timber arch, has been rebuilt a number of times over the years.
