North Australia Coastline

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

The coastline of northern Australia is generally flat and bereft of the pounding surf that is a feature of the eastern and southern seaboard. Waters can be muddy and brown during the wet season as huge rivers disgorge flooding rains and cyclone become a distinct possibility. During the dry season the waters are glassy, flat and beautifully green or blue in colour - beaches are often sandy and white and the coastal cliffs a deep red or burnt orange colour.
