Exmouth: a rose by any other name smells as sweet
Exmouth’s location is 21, 55 degrees south latitude and 114, 08 degrees east longitude.
If you plot the equivalent location north and west, it is a location off the coast of lower California (which is actually Mexico).
If you move the location 500km north-east to place it on the Gulf of California it comes out at a town called Santa Rosalia.
If you then flip the map upside down It looks like an enlargement of Exmouth Gulf.
Santa Rosalia would translate to Saint Rose and Exmouth would be the rose of the north of WA.
or a combination of Rose and Australia — Rosalia.
Maybe Exmouth is the Rose of Oz ? Or maybe the world?
Andrew Ramage took a few of the kids from Warralong Community School inland from Port Hedland to cool off at the Shaw River crossing. Judging by this picture, it looks like the place to be.
