The London Arch is a natural rock formation along the Great Ocean Road. It was formerly called the London Bridge before the arch connecting the shore collapsed in 1990.
These limestone rock formations were named The Twelve Apostles despite only ever having nine stacks. There are 8 remaining today.
The Great Ocean Road was conceived in March 1918 as a war memorial for servicemen who had been killed in the First World War.
