Coastal erosion similar to glacial moraine

Geography was one of my favourite subjects in secondary school, with glaciers and the erosion caused by their massive bulk of particular interest.

I remember terms such as glacial moraine and every now and then I see similar erosion here at Phillip Island.

This section of cliff below Grossard Point is eroding at a slow but steady rate. It takes my mind back to the geography lessons of my teens, and also to glaciers I saw in Switzerland, where I photographed glacial moraine similar to this here on Phillip Island today.
