The London Arch is one of the spectacular rock formations near the Twelve Apostles on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.
The children’s song “London Bridge has fallen down” became reality in January 1990 when the above rock formation suddenly collapsed. For many years day trippers had walked out along this natural bridge to the big rock at the end but after sitting there for possible millions of years the bridges spontaneously collapsed in January 1990 leaving two people stranded on the rock who had to wait several hours for a helicipter to arrive to ferry them back to the mainland.
There is an urban myth that these two people were not actually a couple but both cheating on their respective partners and then got caught out getting their faces on national television but we do not know if this holds truth or not. The rock formation was then renamed to London Arch.
