The story that we will follow is 135 million years old. It is the work of oceans, of deep subterranean pressures and of time, great deep time. Within which continents have formed and broken apart, dinosaurs have died out and mountains have been built where oceans had moments before stretched wide.

We will wander the length of the Great Ocean Road, from the fossil filled cliffs of Torquay, through the twisting and crackling bush of the Otways to the expanse of the Port Campbell plains. Each place that we stop, marked out in maps and photographed, holds a piece of the puzzle. As we go we will gather up these reflections and create a story of this landscape.
