Loch Ard Gorge, Victoria Australia
The Loch Ard Gorge is part of Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia, about three minutes drive west of The Twelve Apostles. The gorge is named after the clipper ship Loch Ard, which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on 1 June 1878 approaching the end of a three-month journey from England to Melbourne. Of the fifty-four passengers and crew, only two survived. This location is visited by many Landscape Photographers and tourists all year round. The arch of the nearby Island Archway collapsed in June 2009. The feature now appears as two unconnected rock pillars.
