Favorite thing: It was here that one of Victoria?s most tragic shipwrecks happened mopre than a century back.
The ship name gave name to the gorge.
Fifty-two people died after the sailing ship, the iron clipper Loch Ard, rammed into the sheer cliffs of Muttonbird Island in stormy weather on 1 June, 1878, just days from completing a three-month voyage from England to Melbourne.
