The Great Ocean Road is located in southwest Melbourne, Australia. It is a 320-kilometer-long, world-famous coastal road.
2 km from the Twelve Apostles, there is a beautiful canyon called Loch Ard Gorge. On June 1, 1878, a British ship named Loch Ard arrived on the way to Melbourne. They found land that could be docked, but did not land immediately, but broke down on the ground. Drinking and celebrating. Unexpectedly, the wind was overwhelming that night, the anchor cable was broken, and the ship hit the rocks. The sailing apprentice Tom flew to the shore of the canyon against the lifeboat nearby and then stunned. When he woke up, he found himself lying on the beach and heard a weak cry for help. Tom saved a girl Eva who was only 18 years old. There were 54 people in the shipwreck, and only two of them survived. Later, Tom was still determined to sail, and Eav was very grateful to Tom for his life-saving grace, but he was afraid that he would lose his loved ones again. He was unwilling to marry Tom, who insisted on continuing to be a seafarer. So, Tom died in another shipwreck a few years later, Eva. Unmarried for life, has lived to 80 years old. This story is mentioned in Eva in a book. In order to commemorate the shipwreck, the descendants named the place "Ruo Ade" Valley and built 52 graves.

There are countless rocky wonders on the Great Ocean Road. In addition to the most famous twelve apostles, there are actually many small attractions that are well worth a visit. For example, The Arch is an arched rock that has been washed by the sea for many years and is a masterpiece of nature creation. There are two viewing platforms, one from a high point to a clear arch shape, and the other to the other side of the coastline. Standing on a steep mountain, overlooking the straits and huge waves, the waves are turbulent and spectacular.
Loch Ard Gorge is only about 2 km from the 12 disciples of the Great Ocean Road. So after 12 tourers, don't forget to continue westbound.
A few hundred meters walk from the parking lot, you can overlook the canyon, and the huge rock stands in the sea, which is very shocking. But don't think that's all. Just follow the trail to the beach and feel the magnificence of the rock up close. Moreover, the beach here is particularly delicate, and the surge in the bay is not very large. Consider swimming in the sun.
But there will be snakes in the nearby grass, or be careful, try not to go inside the grass.
