This area is characterised by an elevated open pasture landscape of sedimentary geology that descends to Bass Strait with high cliffs at the Anderson Peninsula. The setting type extends to Kilcunda and, although it is visually exposed from Western Port, Bass Strait and adjoining land areas, it contains areas obscured from view where development could be considered. Apart from limited residential areas, most adjacent uses are rural in nature.
Critical view points are gained from Kilcunda, along the Bass Highway and from headlands and beaches throughout the setting type.
- In addition to exposed and sensitive areas the setting type has potential to visually absorb development in valleys not directly exposed to the ocean.
- This area is of outstanding scenic quality and requires appropriate planning controls to protect this significant landscape.
