Australia - August 5th, 2010

This image shows much of the state of Queensland in Australia. The state occupies the north-eastern section of the mainland continent.

To the east, Queensland is bordered by the Coral Sea and Pacific Ocean. Here, this part of the coast appears mostly free of sediments. The shoreline west of the Yorke Peninsula, on the other hand, along the Gulf of Carpentaria, is framed by greenish sediments.
