Hallet Cove Hill

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

This unusual eroded hill, known as the ‘Sugarloaf’, is at Hallet Cove on the South Australian coast.
The photo depicts two different coloured rock strata (separated by an unconformity). The layers have been weathered by rain and wind over the centuries.
A brown layer of clay sits on top of weathered white glacial sediments, believed to be 280 million years old. Beneath this is a layer of red silt and sand containing larger dropstones.
This area is significant for its geological rock formations and ancient glacial activity. The formations are now incorporated into the Hallett Cove Conservation Park.
