Island Arch at Loch Ard Gorge - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

360 panorama taken from the viewing platform overlooking Island Arch and the surrounding bay. It is amazing that while the whole of the surrounding area has been eroded so deeply, the arch in the middle of the bay is still standing.

Panoramic image of Island Arch, a sea arch standing in the middle of a bay to the left of Loch Ard Gorge. Sea arches are caused by erosion of a sea stack at a point of weakness until the underlying rock is worn through. Eventually the arch will collapse leaving two standing stacks similar to those of the Twelve Apostles a little further east along the coast. Nearby is the famous Razorback stack. For more information about Loch Ard Gorge and the shipwreck it is named after, see the Loch Ard Gorge Beach panorama.

The Island Arch is one of the attractions on the Great Ocean Road in Australia, most famous for the Twelve Apostles.
