Great Ocean Road Port Campbell
For many people the publicity surrounding the collapse of London Bridge frames a point in time. Many visitors remind us and recount of a loved one that was there a day before or a week after the January 15th 1990 collapse. It was an incident that highlighted for the first time the distinct lack of permanence of the features that dominate this sculptured coast. And perhaps a prelude to the stricter visitor management and protective infra-structure that is necessary for safe and ecologically sound experiences.
London Bridge has upper western and lower eastern viewing platforms to take in the sweeping vistas. Visitors were once able to walk (and at one stage drive) across the eastern span that once connected it to the mainland.
London Bridge is one of two points in the National Park where visitors can observe little penguins returning to shore. The population of 80 – 100 birds is significantly smaller than at the 12 Apostles but the viewing platforms are closer to the birds.
