The Gippsland Lakes, Victoria : a geomorphological study
The Gippsland Lakes are a group of coastal lagoons in eastern Victoria, fed by rivers and cut off from the sea (Bass Strait) by sandy coastal barriers bearing dune topography. The lakes originated when a coastal embayment formed by Postglacial submergence and extended by Recent tectonic subsidence was sealed off by the successive formation of barriers.
