Image Caption: STS062-094-037 Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, Australia March 1994
The relatively small, irregular-shaped peninsula that extends northwest from the much larger Eyre Peninsula in South Australia is Coffin Bay Peninsula. Coffin Bay Peninsula is part of the Coffin Bay National Park, a 75000 acre (30380 hectare) coastal wilderness that contains extensive sandy beaches (lighter, yellowish-looking features along the coastline--left middle). Other smaller sandy beaches are visible west of the two dry lakes (highly reflective, whitish-looking features) named Lake Greenly and Lake Malata (northernmost lake). The small darker brown features (just below center of the picture) are low mountains that include Mount Dutton and South Block (respective elevations above sea level are 1430 feet (435 meters) and 1282 feet (390 meters). The dark, linear feature that extends diagonally across the bottom right corner of the image is the location of a highway and a railroad right-of-way that connects Port Lincoln with the interior.
