Loch Ard Gorge

Great Ocean Rd, Campbell VIC 3269, Australia

Introduction of Loch Ard Gorge

Loch Ard Gorge (Loch Ard Gorge, also known as sinking Canyon, is located in (Port Campbell Nation Park), Port Campbell National Park on (Great Ocean Road), Victoria's famous Ocean Road, about 12 kilometers from Port Campbell (Port Campbell) and about 4 kilometers from the 12th disciple (Twelve Apostles).

Loch Ard Gorge is a precipitous coast with a large area, one of which can go down to the beach, and the sea water flows into a deep blue and green emerald pool from the gates formed by the tall cliffs on both sides. Loch Ard Gorge is majestic and belongs to one of the most beautiful places on Ocean Road.

In the nineteenth century, it was a major British route for transporting criminals or immigrants to the colonies of Victoria and New South Wales, but the coastline was not as scenic as it is now. The sea was often foggy, the wind and waves were high, and the lack of lighthouses made navigation extremely difficult, with more than 600 sunken ships, large and small. The most famous sunken ship, the (Loch Ard), ended up with the name of only a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl who survived, Lorch Ard Gorge.

Don't think of Loch Ard Gorge as a scenic spot. In fact, it is a scenic spot with a total of 5 kilometers of walkways, 3 parking lots and 11 viewing platforms. (Lookout), please see the following map:


  • In the middle is the main scenic spot, next to the parking lot is the Loch Ard Gorge viewing platform (Loch Ard Gorge Lookout), deep canyon pen like ghost cliffs. On the edge of the viewing platform, there are steps all the way to the beach below;
  • In the area on the left side, you can see Island Archway, especially the observation platform at the top of the middle by the left. You can see different valleys and rock scenery on both sides, and walk here for about 10 minutes;
  • On the right, short-term tourists ignore Broken Head and the far right route, and not far from the parking lot to Mirttonbird Island Lookout, the seabirds island is also the real sunken point.

If there is time to walk the hiking routes on both sides of the left and right sides, only two or three hours, the scenery is desperate, hiking is easy, why not? At sunrise and sunset, there was a different view than the twelve disciples.
