Day 99

Forrest Cave, Phillip Island
Millions of years ago ash exploded from nearby volcanic vents.
The ash settled & formed a soft layer of red rock known as tuff.
Over time the force of the ocean & strong winds have carved out the forrest cave structures.
Some of the caves have partialy collapsed,
but the formations are still over three metres high.

oh dear, only 78 days,
