The Flash Road




Scenes from the building of the

Great Ocean Road

Gregory Day

The road the men built was not officially opened

until 1932. Originally it was to be called the

Anzac Highway but we know it today as the

Great Ocean Road. As early as the 1950's

however it had acquired a local nickname: The

Flash Road.

During the years of its construction many others

joined the returned Anzacs in their camps of

'canvas villas' along the road: local men, susso

workers of the Great Depression, and others

who travelled from various parts of Victoria just

for the work. This album of imagined songs was

inspired by the SHEER POETRY of their


Jewel case CD with 12 page booklet featuring

photographic items from historical archive.
