Details

by Graham Patterson

Volume 2: This second volume covers the coastline from Point Nepean to San Remo.

Whether you are on holiday, walking, or just visiting the coast for a short outing, this books will enrich your appreciation of what you see. They will tell you about the plants and animals you may encounter, the way geology influences coastal landforms and the history of each stretch of the coast.

There are fascinating stories of human enterprise such as early salt works on French Island, granite quarrying on Phillip Island and a depot at Altona for exporting explosives.

There are big geological events: the creation of the bays and their repeated filling and emptying over millions of years, and the volcanic formation of much of the coast.

Coastal guide is not confined to popular destinations: this book takes you kilometre by kilometre around the entire coastline from Point Nepean to San Remo. The author has walked the whole shore and has researched the stories which lie behind the features you will see.

Some parts of the coast are not easy to reach and the maps and advice in these books will help you find them.
