Welcome to London Bridge on the Great Ocean Road somewhere south and west of Melbourne. It’s a coastline where erosion of limestone cliffs has left all sorts of dramatic free-standing rock formations. London Bridge used to be two spans of rock across which tourists could walk. Until … one day in Jaunary, 1990, when one of the spans suddenly collapsed leaving a couple marooned on what had now become an island.
The Rough Guide adopts an unusually censorious tone ..
‘The couple were eventually rescued from the far limestone cliff by helicopter. As fate would have it, the couple were conducting an extra-marital affair and fled from the waiting media as soon as the helicopter arrived’
‘Makes you think, Dougal’
‘About what?’ Ted
