"Erosion of headlands along the southern coast of Victoria results chiefly from the attack of storm waves, and is concentrated above a defined level, marked by certain level shore platforms, whose surfaces are at about high tide level. These platforms are initiated and maintained by storm wave erosion. Their surfaces undergo planation and lowering, chiefly by the scouring action of waves of translation, but increasingly by water-layer weathering as the platforms age and widen."
