Look no further than the London Bridge Lookout
If you are looking for a perfect destination for a day trip, look no further than the Mornington Peninsula; tucked away in the very tip of the coast is none other than the beautiful London Bridge Lookout.

London Bridge


The London Bridge area is located at the most northern beach in the Mornington Peninsula National Park. This magnificent formation is composed of sandstone weathered from thousands of years of wind, rain and waves.

A short walk from the car park will take you to the lookout providing breathtaking views of London Bridge, the beach, ocean and the rock formations below. During low tide, rock pools also become visible and are only a step away.

Along the beach you can also see the many magnificent rock formations that have been created along the shoreline.

Besides the rock formations, there are also many native flora and fauna that call this place their home. You will spend hours of fun exploring this beautiful beach, stunning rock formations and the small critters that you may find.

They include picnic grounds, bike riding tracks, and a scenic woodlands walk along the Wilsons Folly Track which leads into the neighbouring Point Neapean National Park,-home to unique wildlife. For those who are more adventurous there are also scuba diving tours and hang gliding or paragliding.

If the lookout from our London Bridge was anything like that, tourism would double in an instant.
