This is Australia’s most well known scenic drive and is a road every rider has probably thought about visiting at some point. Built by returned soldiers to honor fallen mates after WW1 this is the largest war memorial in the world.
Opinions vary about this road. On a fine day it is scenic but it has very low speed limit, lots of tourists, lots of police. For Australia this is no doubt our best coastal drive but if I compare to the Pacific highway California or the coastal roads of Croatia or Japan then I can see how some riders might call it overrated.
I think you have to go ride it at least once if you are an Aussie and one thing that you cannot complain about is it’s length which is nearly 200km’s (mostly away from the coast) and if you add on the excellent roads in the Otway ranges that lie inland then its a great day of riding.
