London Arch is an offshore natural arch formation in the Port Campbell National Park, Australia. The arch is a significant tourist attraction along the Great Ocean Road near Port Campbell in Victoria. This stack was formed by a gradual process of erosion, and until 1990 formed a complete double-span natural bridge.The span closer to the shoreline collapsed unexpectedly on 15 January 1990, leaving two tourists stranded on the outer span before being rescued by police helicopter. No one was injured in the event. Prior to the collapse, the arch was known as London Bridge because of its similarity to its namesake.

  • Great Ocean Road is simply fantastic. Beautiful, unusual rock formations, great ocean view, awesome wildlife if you're lucky. Sunset is the best.
  • Very easy and convenient walk from the car park. The view is very nice as well. The high tides can come through the Arch in a very stunning way.
