Island Archway at the 24.11.08

Island Archway

Until the 24.11.2008 Island Archway was one the best-known rocks of Australia. The more than 25 m high rocky bow stood in front of the South East Coast at the Great Ocean Road.

Now there are just two high columns jutting out of the water, while the connecting piece lies disrupted in the sea. the reason for the collapse is the relatively soft chalk the Island Archway is made of.

For the reason read the information.
