Mouth of the Powlett River
I recently attended a meet-up of Melbourne Redbubble photographers at the lovely mouth of the Powlett River. Apparently this area is proposed as the location for a new water desalination plant.
There is a lot of local opposition to the plant being built here, …you can get a sense of the controversy by googling the words “powlett river desalination”.
The area is indeed beautiful and looks completely different depending on whether you visit a low tide or high tide. Low tide reveals some spectacular rock pools and high tide completely hides the pools and highlights the spectacular surf and tidal forces. This place is well worth two visits but check your tide guides before going.
