IT IS extraordinary that such an array of stunning coastal features, scenic landscapes and so many interesting wildlife species occurs in an island that stretches little more than 20 kilometres end to end. Phillip Island is a unique and a special place.
The second edition of 500 Million Years on Phillip Island, by Linda Cuttriss and Eric Bird, is the story of our island and how it came to be.
Linda is well known in Bass Coast as a winner of the 2020 Bass Coast Prize for Non-Fiction. She grew up on a dairy farm in Inverloch and now lives on Phillip Island. Her professional life includes education, environment and community engagement and she is an active Island environmentalist.
