Image Caption: This area was the site of the infamous wreck and mutiny of the Batavia
in 1629. Today it is the site of the largest commercial fishery in
Western Australia (for rock lobster). The warm Leeuwin current
maintains water temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius and permits tropical corals
and fish to survive at a latitude that would normally be too cold.
