Sunset at the Greenough River Mouth
Encounter the breathtaking beauty of the Western Australian landscape through Karl Monaghan’s fine art print, “Sunset at the Greenough River Mouth.” This extraordinary piece captures the serene scene of the Greenough River as it meanders its way towards the Indian Ocean, presenting a warm symphony of oranges that mirror the setting sun’s glow.
The Greenough River has its headwaters near Woojalong Hills on the Yilgarn Plateau and runs in a south-westerly direction through deep valleys for approximately 340 kilometres, passing through the Waterloo Ranges before descending to the coastal plain. As it nears the sea, it is obstructed by dunes and turns to the north-west, running along a dune swale parallel with the coast for about 35 km before finally discharging into the Indian Ocean at Cape Burney, about 9 kilometres south of Geraldton, Western Australia.
The lower reaches of the Greenough are estuarine, extending probably about 7 km to near Bootenal Springs. The river mouth is barred from the ocean by a sandbar that breaks only in periods of strong flow. Once open, it usually remains open for several months. The bar has now been reinforced with brushwood on the northern side, to force the bar to open only on the southern side, where the adjacent dune is more stable.
