The Wreck of the Loch Ard
Follow the tragic story of the Loch Ard shipwreck site to the cemetery. This easy walk covers 1.4km and will take you approximately 50 minutes to complete. For more details about this amazing story of courage and survival ensure a visit to the Glenample Historic Homestead and the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village.
Living on the Edge
Discover life on the edge of the sheer cliffs. The walk encompasses the Muttonbird Island viewing platform, the majestic Blowhole, Thunder Cave and Broken Head. Return distance for this easy walk is 3.2km, allow approximately 90 minutes.
The main path from the carpark leading to the Loch Ard Gorge designated viewing areas and the Island Archway designated viewing areas is sealed and approximately 2.3 metres wide. The first viewing area of Loch Ard Gorge is approximately 20 metres from the carpark and is accessed by a short, smaller path that leads off the main path. This path is approximately 170 centimetres wide and is also sealed. This path takes you to the first small viewing area overlooking the Gorge. This viewing area has pool-style fencing railing which may slightly obstruct the view of a person seated in a wheelchair or stroller.
A second designated viewing area of Loch Ard Gorge is located 30 metres further along the path and there is a slight downward gradient to it.
This viewing area has concrete walls, making it difficult to see the Gorge from a seated position.
There are steps leading down to the small beach area at the bottom of the Gorge near this viewing area. These steps are not suitable for strollers, wheelchairs or visitors with limited mobility.
