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 place of excitement. We were 5people there. Have fun. Bit of cold though but time was fantastic. Here are some photoes.
  • Nothing special, compared to other attraction along GOR. Nice view though.
  • The scenery definitely is worth the long way driving here. No question about it!
  • Amazing landscapes in a unique natural place. Sunsets are great por great pictures.
  • This used to be called the London Arch now just the Arch - still very impressive.
