This is well worth a stop if you are sightseeing the "Great Ocean Road". It is well laid out and has very good access and parking with consideration given for wheel chairs. Definitely worth a look and a great toilet stop.

Worth the short time to walk through this which explains why and how the road was built. Felt sorry for the men who mainly hand dug this road over 13 years!

Located in Lorne information centre this is a great place to spend ten mins, especially if you are doing a self drive holiday

Well worth the time to schedule this road trip into your holiday. Easy drive with lots of pullovers and view points. Best if you go the direction that puts you in the outside view lane.

While we were at the Lorne information center we wandered in to this exhibit adjacent to the info center. It is free. It's not interactive or dynamic but it is very informative about how the Great Ocean Road came into being. It doesn't take all...More

The Great Ocean Road is back in business. Nice to see after the terrible bushfires stopped travellers visiting the region.

We hadn't realised the history of the Great Ocean Road, nor the cost paid by our returning soldiers. It was very enjoyable and told in a very engaging way. We moved throughout the building, to progress through the story. We saw many visual images from...More
