Copp, Iain

More than 3,700 million years of geological history is recorded in rocks of the south-west.  The landscape is very old, having probably begun to develop about 295 million years ago when a large ice cap covered most of its surface.  During this time, Australia was close to the South Pole and glaciers carved broad deep valleys into the landscape.  The south-west experienced a moist, temperate to tropical climate some 65 million years ago, resulting in deep inland penetration of rain-bearing westerly winds.

This small pocket book contains a wealth of information for visitors and anybody else interested in the area.
