Coincidentally, another "Loch Ard" met a tragic end in 1878 when she hit a reef near what is today Port Campbell on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. 52 passengers and crew were lost, the only survivors were 18 year old passenger Eva Charmichael who was saved by 18 year old crewmember Tom Pierce. If they had been Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet they would have married and started a sheep station, but, sadly, they never met again after being rescued. Eventually Eva returned to Ireland and Tom became a ship's captain.

Lots of artifacts from the ship are on display in the local museum and there is a clifftop cemetary overlooking the spectacular "Loch Ard Gorge", containing the graves of some of the lost passengers and crew.
