Photographer's Note

From Apollo Beach the Great Ocean Road follows the coast from rocky bay to rocky bay. There are mostly steep Rocky cliffs here with very few beaches. The Southern Ocean is dangerous and powerful here and the great waves pound the red sandstone cliffs of Victoria. This coast was know as 'The Shipwreck Coast' because of the number of ships battered by the angry sea against these rocks. Strong onshore winds an these cruel rocks has proved the end of a number of them during the 18th and 19th centuries.
