12 Apostles' Neighbour

The Woodside cum Origin gas plant has been built on one of the highest points - nope, not hidden low in a gully, or even hidden by trees - near Port Campbell, some 10km from the 12 Apostles.

The Origin gas plant near Port Campbell and the Great Ocean Road: built on one of the area's highest points
The gas plant is visible from the Great Ocean Road. Many assurances were given by gas plant proponents that no gas plant would be visible from the Great Ocean Road. No-one has ever been made to be accountable for this or other breaches, including the flare which pollutes the night sky.
