A stratified archaeological site on great Glennie Island, Bass Strait
MetadataShow full item record
The minimum distance to Wilson's Promontory is 7km, but this is to the 40m perpendicular cliffs of Oberon Point. The only feasible landing or embarking places on the west coast of the Promontory opposite the island group are the beaches of Oberon Bay, Norman Bay at Tidal River or Squeaky Beach to the north. In all cases, the minimum open sea distance to the anchorage on the island is 9km. In western and southern Tasmania there was an inverse relationship between the intensity of use of an offshore island and the minimum cross-sea distance required to reach it.
