London Bridge coast - Portsea
London Bridge is a well-known rock formation at the extreme easterly tip of the Mornington Peninsula National Park, about 2 km from the town of Portsea, 90 km south of Melbourne.
The Bridge is reached by following the Portsea Ocean Beach Rd, then continuing to the Bridge car park.
A pathway follows the cliff-top, yielding excellent views of the Bridge formation.
Another track descends to the Beach, and from there it is a 350 m hike along the sand to the Bridge itself.
A pleasant 2 km walking path, known as the Farnsworth Track, passing along the tops of the sand dunes, links the London Bridge carpark and the Portsea Ocean Beach.
There is an excellent Lookout on this Track, not to be missed!
After exploring the Bridge, I hiked along the beach to the Portsea carpark,a total distance of about 3 km.
The fuzziness in some photos along the beach was due to a heavy heat haze which had come in from the ocean!
