Bay of Islands

by Chris' Landscape Images Of Australia

Stretched Canvas

DESCRIPTION

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

Much of the Limestone Coast, including the “Bay of Islands” regions are low-lying, and was inundated by sea some 2 million years ago. It is in theory , believed to have flooded 15–20 million years ago.

The plains are lined by rows of low sandhills parallel to the coast, created at times when the coastline was at that level. Prior to white settlement, much of the land between the sandhills was swamp fed by streams and subject to inundation. A network of drains totalling 1450 km has been constructed to channel the water away through the sandhills to the ocean. Important areas of wetland remain including the lakes and lagoons around the Murray Mouth, where the huge Murray River, by now reduced by draining off into the dry plains of Australia, finally meets the ocean between the Younghusband and the Sir Richard Peninsulas via a series of shallow lagoons including the Coorong, Lake Albert, Lake Alexandrina and Bool Lagoon. Meanwhile areas of upland behind the Limestone Coast include the volcanic craters of Mount Gambier in South Australia.

The Limestone Coast features 20 sites of international or national significance. Mount Gambier’s Blue Lake fills the crater of a dormant volcano. The Pool of Siloam at Beachport is seven times saltier than the sea. The megafauna fossils in the World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves are around half a million years old. The list goes on.
