AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Slipping Coastline

Rugged coastline at Point Nepean, the furthest point south on the Mornington Peninsula.
The waters of Bass Strait are on the right.
The land is slowly slipping in to the sea.

Mother Nature gives her earth
