remarkable rocks Kangaroo island

Formed in the post-Cambrian period these weathered rocks are composed of granite which was laid down about 500 Million years ago. The granite has similar characteristics to the granite found at Cape Willoughby and is possibly part of the same intrusion which formed at depth and has since been exposed by weathering and erosion this is called the Linois Plains. The exposed rocks are nothing but remarkable in size and shape.
