The Great Ocean Road : 6

+++ Tom and Eva +++


The pictured central formation was once the Archway in an inlet at Loch Ard Gorge. The span collapsed in June 2009. Now we see sandstone pillars that have been named Tom and Eva, the two teenage survivors of the Loch Ard shipwreck mentioned in yesterday's post.

You can see how this archway once looked in this superb HD video by Phil Selmes.
