Joyce Country & Western Lakes Geopark Region GEOLOGICAL STORY

 

The rocks and landscape of the Joyce Country & Western Lakes geopark region tell a story that spans 700 million years and have a geology of international importance.

They tell the story of a continent that started in the Southern Hemisphere and split apart, of an ocean that opened and closed again, of land that was submerged beneath warm tropical waters, of a continent in the Northern Hemisphere that split apart to form a new ocean, of periods of landscape-forming glaciations and finally of human interaction with the land.
