DISCOVER THIS HIDDEN GEM AMONG THE GREAT ICONIC ATTRACTIONS
Situated in the heart of the Great Ocean Road’s iconic attractions Peterborough is a great family friendly destination with a shorefront playground and children's riding loop.
Place names around Peterborough are often tied to nearby shipwrecks. Look for names like Newfield bay, Halladale Point, Antares Rock and Schomberg Reef.
A great shorefront playground and children's riding loop immediately marks Peterborough as a family friendly destination. The tennis courts are often alive with family challenge matches until the smell from the BBQ draws everybody from the court.
GOLF WITH SUPERB VIEWS
Peterborough is also home to a magnificent Golf Course offering views east to London Arch (formerly London Bridge).
London Arch is an offshore formation in the Port Campbell National Park. This stack was formed by a gradual process of erosion, and until 1990 formed a complete double-span natural bridge.
The span closer to the shoreline collapsed unexpectedly on 15 January 1990, leaving two tourists stranded on the outer span before being rescued by helicopter. No one was injured in the event.
