STIRLING RANGES

Coming across a gravel road called Stirling Ranges Road, we thought we’d see what was up there. Turned out to be a very scenic and dramatic range, with low metre high scrub on the wind swept eastern side and more normal 3 metre forests in the canyons and on the western side. The mountains are the result of the Antarctic shelf colliding with the Australian shelf, creating magma which was driven into the granite. The metamorphic rock is called Gneiss (Nice).

The seven dwarves were equally surprised!
