The Darling Scarp, Parallel to the Coast of Western Australia31.9S 115.8E
Most of the southwest corner of Western Australia is covered by bright green vegetation and fields, with the exception of one dark brown strip running parallel to the coast.
This is the Darling Scarp (previously known as the Darling Range), a low escarpment running north-south to the east of the Swan Coastal Plain and Perth. It extends generally north of Bindoon, to the south of Pemberton, and easterly to include Mount Bakewell near York and Mount Saddleback near Boddington.
The dark green and brown is dense vegetation on and above the scarp, which has been retained for forest reserve and water catchment purposes. The sharp vegetation boundary on the coastal side coincides with the edge of the scarp.
