Artist's Description

The Nobbies is a world renowned natural attraction on Phillip Island in Victoria Australia.

The volcanic rock formations make up the southern most tip of the island.

This vantage point was captured from around the corner along one of the many boardwalks. it depicts a natural rock pool formed over centuries by the poerful surf poinding on the volcanic rock.

The nobbies is home to a veritable oasis of wildlife including many species of birdlife such as shortailed shearwater and cape baron geese. This shot wastaken during nesting season in November.

The smaller rock formations to the left of the large mountainous rock form are known as Seal Rocks and are home to a large population of fur seals.

A maze of boardwalks have been built so visitors can enjoy this beautiful location from many vantage points.

Around thecorner many fascinating naturally carved rock pools and caves have formed over centuries including the famous Blow Hole, a cave in the side of the cliff where large waves are projected powerfully back out toward the sea. They bounce of the back wall of the small cave with such force that a large boom is heard and a massive spray of white surf is emitted.
