The Rocky Creek Glacier - Narrabri by 


This was taken at The Rocky creek Glacier’s that are in the mountains east of Narrabri in the northwest of NSW.
Before you jump in your car and head out there be warned, there is no ice to be seen! Nor will you find any of the typical glacial landform features, such as steep sided, flat bottomed, U shaped valleys. These landform features are the result of glaciers which existed during the last one million years, in Pleistocene Epoch.

The Rocky Creek glaciation is very much older, dating back some 290 million years to the Carboniferous Period. A vast amount of weathering and erosion occurs in over 200 million years, so all the original glacial landscape features have been eroded away and replaced by those typically associated with running water.
