Artist's Description

Discovery Bay Coastal Park is a majestic 50 km sweep of ocean beach, huge dunes, Aboriginal middens and coastal lakes in South West Victoria, Australia.

Discovery Bay was named by Lieutenant Grant in 1800 during a voyage along the south-western coast of what is now Victoria. The first Europeans to traverse the Discovery Bay area were Stephen and Edward Henty who set out west from Merino Downs (near Portland) in June 1839 and discovered Mount Gambier.

Three schooners that worked the coastal routes were wrecked along the Discovery Bay coast from the mid to late 1800s. Many lives were lost from the two 1860s wrecks.

Art Panorama 6×17cm format, Fuji Velvia film.
