Australia - September 1st, 2009

Spencer Gulf is the westernmost of two large inlets on the southern coast of Australia, in the state of South Australia, facing the Great Australian Bight. The Gulf is 322 km (200 mi) long and 129 km (80 mi) wide at its mouth. The western shore of the gulf is the Eyre Peninsula, while the eastern side is the Yorke Peninsula.

The land west of the gulf appears quite arid, while that to the east is green and covered with vegetation and agriculture. The two dark brown areas amidst the green are mountains: Mount Brown (above) and Mount Remarkable (below). This area is protected as part of the Mount Remarkable National Park, with a surface area of more than 160 kmĀ².
