Photographer's Note

At the head of the Great Australian Bight, the northern most section of the Southern Ocean, lies the small hamlet of Eucla. Settled in the early 1870's, it is most famous for it's old telegraph station which is slowly being swallowed by the encroaching sand dunes. This pier was built to service the telegraph station and local land owners. the old town site is now abandoned to the dunes. The present town lies 5 km to the east.
