London Bridge, Mornington Peninsula National Park, VIC.

A spectacular area of the Mornington Peninsula is the London Bridge area.
The area is the most northern beach in the Mornington Peninsula National Park and borders Point Nepean National Park.
A lookout, only a short walk from the car park, provides stunning views of London Bridge, the beach and the rock platforms below. There are majestic views east towards Portsea and north-west towards Point Nepean National Park. Beach access is via a steep ramp.







A large rock platform provides for great snorkeling and exploring the rock pools at low tide. You can just see some of the rocks, which form the rock pools, at high tide below.

This famous land form is composed of sandstone and has been formed through weathering action of thousands of years of wind, rain and waves.




The large area of native coastal vegetation along the cliff tops provide habitat for large variety of birds and some of the park’s rarest mammals such as Long-nosed bandicoots and White-footed dunnarts.


The area is definitely worth a visit if you are on the Mornington Peninsula.

This would have to be one of my favourite places to visit on my peninsula. Adore the sweeping beach and the magical arch. The area is spectacular in any weather. Beautiful photos.

I've spent a lot of time on the other side of the bay - but I think I need to visit Mornington a bit more.

Great shots.
