This part of Australia has the highest tidal range of any port in the country, with changes of up to 12m in water height. At low tide, as the water recedes, water is left only in the tidal channels and the mud around them dries to create beautifully organic patterns. This particular mudflat pattern has the poise and elegance of a ballet dancer.
