Description - Eden in a Bog by Leona Woolcock
Although subjected to land-forming forces in the last tens of millions of years, the land cradling the swamp has been weathered by the elements for around 225 million years; for 85 million years before flowering plants appeared on earth. Part of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula, it lies about 100 kilometres south of Adelaide...In summer there is a striking contrast between the surrounding landscape and the swamp: one is parched, the other wet, green, colourful, humming and flush with birds. Between them runs a ragged line of eucalypts, sedges and occasional orchids.
