Loch Ard Gorge

This coastal gorge, surrounded by high cliffs is part of Port Campbell National Park in Victoria on the south coast of Australia. Access by the Great Ocean Road it was one of many stops my tour guide made. The gorge was named after a fast sailing ship called the Loch Ard. She ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on the 1st June 1878 after a three month journey from England to Melbourne. Of the 45 crew only two survived. Never will I complain about “long haul” flights again!
