Australia - May 2nd, 2011

Sediments line the southern coast of the Gulf of Carpinteria in Queensland, Australia, giving the waters a greenish tinge. Rivers such as the Flinders (right) and Burke (left) empty into this part of the gulf.

A cluster of islands can be observed in the southern reaches of the gulf: the South Wellesley Islands. The mainland shoreline, on the other hand, is known as Gulf Country. It is a region of woodland and savanna grassland surrounding the Gulf of Carpentaria.
