Information

Steep cliff face. Can be accessed via the Acacia Ridge walk from Arkaroola village.
The ridge itself is of Blue Mine Conglomerate, one of the older sediments of the Adelaide Geosyncline. If you look closely at the pieces of rock it has crystals in it; these are quartz a mineral found in granite, an igneous rock. Thus, Blue Mine Conglomerate (an arkose) is formed from sediments laid down 800-900 million years ago resulting from the erosion of an even older granite—an island mass to the north. In some places the Blue Mine Conglomerate is finely grained like quartzite and like that too, it displays ripple marks.These sediments are no longer lying flat as can be seen by the bare, near vertical faces visible both along the road and the walk
