Bathymetry of Australia

The Bathymetry of Australia Flythrough highlights large canyons off the coasts of Western Australia, New South Wales and South Australia, including a close-up flythrough from the deep ocean (4600m deep) to the shelf (200m deep) through the Perth Canyon, which measures an incredible 4400m from top to bottom. By comparison, the United States Grand Canyon is 1800m from top to bottom. The flythrough also passes some of Australia’s shallower water features on the continental shelf, focusing on the numerous submarine banks and shoals that make up the Great Barrier Reef.
