The Island That Time Forgot; Pearson, Inv. Gp.,SA
This island is my favorite place in the world
Remote,being about 50 km from the mainland,and located within the eastern edge of the Great Australian Bight,it has been a conservation zone for well over a century and has never had white settlers cropping or grazing so is almost weed free and comes as close as any place on the planet to fitting the much abused term Pristine.
Spectacular diving and a prehistoric feel pervades one’s gut just looking at the steep slopes covered with bizarre caves; you don’t need much imagination to immediately wonder why there are no dinosaurs,such as pterodactyls,hidden in the caves and woods that follow the ephemeral creeks to the shoreline.
It also has a small breeding colony of Australian sea lions and it’s own subspecies of black footed rock wallaby.
BTW the waters of the continental shelf in this section of southern Australia (Southern Ocean which paradoxically also has the highest water energy of all the planet’s major oceans,is the clearest of all.
