The London Bridge area is the most northern beach in the Mornington Peninsula National Park and borders Point Nepean National Park. This famous landform is composed of sandstone and has been formed through weathering action of thousands of years of wind, rain and waves.
A lookout only a short walk from the car park provides stunning views of London Bridge, the beach and the rock platforms below. Views east towards Portsea and north-west towards Point Nepean National Park.
Beach access is via a steep ramp. A large rock platform provides for great snorkeling and exploring the rock pools at low tide
Large area of native coastal vegetation along the cliff tops provide habitat for large variety of birds and some of the park’s rarest mammals such as Long-nosed bandicoots and White-footed dunnarts.
The Farnsworth track (2km return loop) to the east links London Bridge and Portsea Ocean Beach along the cliff tops via two spectacular lookouts. Alternate return route along the beach.
The Wilsons Folly Track leads directly into neighboring Point Nepean National Park and provides a scenic walk through Moonah woodlands and grassy bowls alive with unique wildlife. (to Quarantine Station 2.5km & Point Nepean 6km)
London Bridge provides a great ocean vista and a view of the arched rocked formation.
