Child of Gondwana

Child of Gondwana: The geological making of Tasmania is a rare blend of comfortable reading and accurate scientific information.

It is a good time to write about Tasmanian geology. Many uncertainties which have marked previous decades have been clarified by research and field studies. The age and origin of our Precambrian rocks is now reasonably well known, and we can boast a close association with North America in that early period. The puzzle of there being two apparent groups of Precambrian rocks has been solved and Tasmania’s place in the supercontinent Gondwana has been clarified.
