Firstly I will give you the background information of Cape Grim Beef from Tasmania. Grown in the southern most part of Australia and with good reason. Tomorrow I will post how it actually tasted and if in fact there is a difference to good mainland Australian meat.
Cape Grim is on the north-western most tip of the Tasmanian mainland.
With its rugged isolation and the Roaring 40s whipping up from the Southern Ocean, it has the world’s most pure air.
- Monitoring at the Baseline Air Pollution Station at Cape Grim has determined that the air at the Cape is the most pure in the world.
- It rains on average 187 days of the year.
- The remoteness and westerly airflow from the pollution free Southern Ocean means the air is free of ‘contaminates’.
When comparing the air at Cape Grim to the rest of the world, the difference is clear. Per cubic cm of air, the rest of the world has 5,000 to 500,000 particles, whereas Cape Grim has only 10 to 600 particles.
The Station is jointly operated by the Bureau of Meteorology and the CSIRO. It is one of 25 in the world and the only one in Australia. Samples of the atmosphere from Cape Grim were first taken over 20 years ago and are sent all over the globe for scientific use.
