Today we are going to visit the most scenic coastal road in the world - the Great Ocean Road. Along the way we will pass through the scenic town - Lorne and Apollo Bay and visit the Twelve Apostles, a famous landmark on the Great Ocean Road. Not far ahead is Loch Ard Gorge, which is one of the most beautiful places on the Great Ocean Road. We can also see the London Bridge. The bridge rock was originally a headland connecting the sea and the land. Due to the years of erosion of the waves and wind, two round holes were formed, which formed a double arch, so it was named "London Bridge". Later, the round hole that connected it with the land suddenly collapsed and separated from the mainland, forming the broken bridge we see today.
