MIRIMA NATIONAL PARK #2

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
More rock formations from Mirima National Park near Kununurra in the North of Western Australia.

Like in Keep River National Park (see previous up-load in the album “Australia 2012” if interested, the sandstone is known as “Kelly’s Knob Sandstone”. It’s made of grain of fine sand are fine in even layers which were deposited far off-shore in the sea which once covered this area.

There are layers of sand and beds of conglomerate or “Pudding Stone”. These layers alternate creating a layer of rounded rock cemented in a finer mix.
These rocks are 250 million years old and have been subjected to uplifting, tilting occurred and extensive weathering. As a result you can see amazing rock formations with crevices, caves, overhangs and rich colours which change throughout the day.
