Cyclone Debris?

Recommended Posts

A tad windy the other day so I went around the headland and came upon this rock about 30 feet above highwater mark (20 ft tides) and some 60 to 70 feet from the water.and nestled up against a bonzai moreton bay fig.

 

The rock is completely water worn and weighs in at about 200kg Must have been a big cyclone to do that.

That looks like an interesting rock formation. Fossils?


The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Cory, Bobj,

 

I thought all the sedimentary materials had washed off OZ. I thought it was mostly tectonic plate material sub-India?????????

Bobj,

 

Definitely a cool rock.

 

Probably a Hawaiian tsunami (?) from back when "heck was a pup", not a cyclone ??

Thought I had replied earlier to Cory's question...

 

It is basal granite.

 

Odd thing, Phone, 13 km away from my place is a saltwater creek that has freshwater fossil crayfish that are about 10,000 years old, (Thalassina anomala)

Bobj,

Just kidding. More likely from "The Flood". I've always been fascinated by the geology of Australia. Seems it should be so "easy" and yet you've a lot of the "unexplained"

The Devil's Marbles is Karlu Karlu in the local Aboriginal dialect. Seen it many times and still wonder at the grandeur of it.

Perhaps because of that ?
