Abstract

A communication of mine, "On the encroachments of
the sea at Circular Head and along the north coast
of Tasmania", was read at a meeting of the Royal Society
at Hobart Town on 17th December, 1851. This short
paper was the result of observations made during an excursion
along the coast from Circular Head to Launceston, in
October 1851. I have now to add to the remarks I then
made, that in October of this year I had occasion to ride
from Circular Head to Woolnorth, the extreme north-western
point of Van Diemen's Land, and I observed that throughout
that line of coast the sea is steadily advancing and
gaining upon the land.
