Loch Ard Gorge Beach - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This 360 panorama shows Loch Ard Gorge from the beach level. The gorge ends in two coves divided by a dramatic rocky outcrop which share one beach. From here the long gorge heads out to the open sea. I love this kind of place, a great spot for lunch.

Loch Ard Gorge is on the Great Ocean Road is named after the sailing clipper Loch Ard (itself named after Loch Ard in Scotland ), which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on 1 June 1878. She was nearing the end of a 3 month voyage from England to Melbourne . Only 2 of the 54 passengers and crew survived. Both were 18 years old. Tom Pearce, a ship's apprentice, was washed ashore here and heard the cries of Eva Carmichael, an Irish emigrant whom he pulled from the water. Tom then climbed out of the gorge to find help from local people.

Loch Ard Gorge is one of the more dramatic attractions on the Great Ocean Road in Australia , most famous for the Twelve Apostles . Within the same area area also Island Arch, a sea arch, and a long stack known as the Razorback.
