There are several sites which have become major tourist attractions such as 'The 12 Apostles', 'London Bridge' (not quite as spectacular since part of the span collapsed into the sea several years ago) and 'The Grotto'.
If you click on the photos of these signs you should be able to read the text quite clearly.
You can see the crack in the end of 'The Razorback' on the right side of photo. No doubt it will only be a few years before another piece breaks off.
These outcrops would have been one piece a long time ago before being separated by the relentless waves.
A brief outline of the wreck of the Loch Ard.
Flagstaff Hill. Every evening (except Christmas) visitors can witness after sunset an amazing Sound and Laser Show giving graphic details of one of the most famous events in Australian history. This internationally rated $5m show lasts for approximately one hour, but here is an excerpt of just a few minutes from "Shipwrecked".

The Sorrento to Queenscliff Ferry crossing Port Phillip Bay. Two ferries run in opposite directions every hour, 12 hours a day, all year round. The 40 minute trip saves many kms of city travelling across Melbourne.
