West Coast Council is pleased to support the following submissions:

The Philosopher's Tale

Prepared by Destination West Coast, the concept of The Philosophers’ Tale is driven by a powerful narrative exploring the way that man has shaped this environment and vice versa over the past two hundred years. In 1859 Charles Gould passed through the area and named the peaks of the West Coast Range after the prominent minds of his day, hence the name, The Philosophers’ Tale.
