Image Caption: NASA7-710-061 Australian Alps, Victoria, Australia Winter/Spring 1998
Natural features along the southern coast of Victoria dominate this synoptic view that extends from Port Phillip Bay (upper right corner) to Ninety Mile Beach (linear feature left middle). Eastward from Port Phillip Bay the major coastal features include Western Port Bay (with French Island in the middle of the bay), Cape Paterson, Cape Liptrop, forested Wilson's Promontory (the southernmost point of land of mainland Australia), and shallow and sandy Corner Inlet (along the east side of Wilson's Promontory). The small dark area immediately north and inland of Corner Inlet is a forested, low mountain (less than 2000 feet - 610 meters above sea level). The much larger dark area (bottom center) is a more elevated, extensive mountain range, known as the Australian Alps. These mountains are also the southern extent of the Great Dividing Range that runs along almost the entire eastern margin of the Australian continent.
