Loch Ard Gorge, The Shipwreck Coast, Victoria
The Loch Ard Gorge is part of Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia, about 10 minutes drive west of The Twelve Apostles. It is a visible example of the process of erosion in action. The gorge is named after the clipper ship Loch Ard, which ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island on 1 June 1878 approaching the end of a three-month journey from England to Melbourne. Of the the fifty-one passengers and crew, only two survived: Tom Pearce, a ship's apprentice, and Eva Carmichael, an Irishwoman immigrating with her family, both of whom were 18 years of age. According to memorials at the site, Pearce was washed ashore, and rescued Carmichael from the water after hearing her cries for help. Pearce then proceeded to climb out of the gorge to raise the alarm to local pastoralists who immediately set into plan a rescue attempt. The arch of the nearby Island Archway collapsed in June 2009. The feature now appears as two unconnected rock pillars. They have since been officially named Tom and Eva after the two teenage survivors of the Loch Ard shipwreck. (Wikipedia) Camera - Nikon N80 SLR Loch Ard Gorge (by John Foulcher) We climb along a weathered cream precipice look down into the waves, tide thrust into the dark interior of earth with a sound like fire uncontrolled A century ago, there was a shipwreck here. Its gravestones hump the grass a hundred yards away - you can just make out their name, the hammocks of bone and meat lugged from the sea and dumped in the soil Sheep and cattle surround the place, kicking tufts of unconcern through the sea’s brittle, incessant static, their heads slung to the grass, their teeth locked on the earth, while, somewhere past the unfinished cliffs, savage dark fish are tearing the prey apart, blood phrasing the water decked with light.
