Today we visited the lobster pot to learn more about the history and Geography of Barwon Heads as this is our inquiry topic this term.
We learnt that before the ice age the land all the way to Ballarat was under water and that a volcano at Mt Duneed 2 million years caused the Black Rock (basalt) that we see around the bluff today.
“At the Heads” restaurant used to be a fishing co-op where the fisherman would bring their fish to sell.
We were interested to learn about the years of major floods.
These artefacts were discovered after the shipwreck of the Earl of Charlmont.
And the photo on the right shows Hitchcock Street during a big flood. It looks very different today!

At the end we put together a timeline of photos.
