The Great Ocean Road – Memorial Arch at Eastern View

Memorial Arch at Eastern View is a tribute to those who built the Great Ocean Road. It was three thousand survivors of World War One who helped build the road. When they returned from war these brave men needed to find work which was a big part of them, being rehabilitated back into civilian life. Post war the GOR project offered these returning soldiers the chance to work out in the open, share comradeship and contribute to a young growing country. The current Memorial Arch is the fourth to be erected, Fire, Storm and redevelopment of the road removed the previous three.

The Arch celebrates the road itself and symbolises the sacrifice made by thousands during the First World War. It has been erected over the longest and largest war memorial in the world, “The Great Ocean Road.”
