Two teenagers, Eva Carmichael and Tom Pearce, survived and were washed into the gorge, where they found shelter in a cave until they were rescued.
There is a walk that recounts the tragic story, starting at the wreck site and culminating at the cemetary.
Other walks show scenic beauty, of which there is plenty. Majestic rock formations and the gorge itself are magnificent. The Blowhole is a particularly cool spot when swells are high, as waves surge through 100 feet of tunnel before exploding through an open hole.
The caves are quite cool too, as is the beach within the gorge. Apparently at dusk from September to May, you can observe thousands of muttonbirds returning to their nests on Muttonbird Island.
This is easily one of the star attractions of the Great Ocean Road. With its combination of fantastic scenery and interesting history, it was certainly my favorite spot. Do take some time to explore this place.
