Port Campbell during the day was such a pleasant surprise. We were staying the night at a charming property (Loch Ard Motor Inn) which had our rooms facing the beautiful hidden beach and was surrounded my a number of breakfast places and quaint cafes. It was a sea side village of our dreams and all we wanted to do is spend the day just relaxing by the beach, enjoy the beautiful weather and trying out all the little cafes. Resisting our urge to spend another night in the village we checked out of the Inn and got ourselves on the road to once again explore the spectacular look out points along the much anticipated Great Ocean Drive.
Tip: Get some amazing brekkie and coffee (really good coffee) with a stunning view at the 12 Rocks Cafe. Later catch a game with some beverage in the evening at their Bar.
THE LONDON ARCH
Given it was one of our first stops on the road after Port Campbell village, I can't emphasise enough on how stunningly picturesque the look out point was. The natural stone arch in the blue is the main highlight of this iconic spot. The structure was formed due to a gradual process of erosion that gave way to a natural stone bridge from mainland to the stone arch-way and a tunnel in the water. Unfortunately the bridge collapsed in 1990, all that is left is the Arch and prior to the collapse it was called the "London Bridge".
