Following on from part 1, to the south the limestone coast region is bounded by a coastline that includes sweeping sandy beaches and scenic but treacherous rocky capes. In the late 17th century the coastal town of Port MacDonnell was one of Australia's busiest ports, shipping large quantities of wheat and wool to Europe. Today it is home to a rock lobster harvesting industry.

I have never been to Australia. The only things ever passed my eyes about it are the dry dessert lands and the Crocodile Dundee landscapes. The other are the underwater world of the great barrier reef.
Seeing these pictures, the coast in this way and the stormy skies changed my view of Australia. A lovely way of realizing that the world is a much bigger place. Thanks for showing.

Some beautiful images of this rugged coastline.
My favourite is #6 with the heavy clouds, the sunlit sand, the rolling surf and the fishermen. The only thing that jars for me is the heavy overlaid tracking of numerous 4WD vehicles that obviously tear up the beach and the dune access as they cross in some volume.

Jet, that's one of the things I too enjoy about Dyxum, seeing other parts of the world through the lenses of a diverse community.

On the plus side Joe, I expect most of the wheel tracks on the beach would be regularly erased by the tide.
C & C always welcome
