Adelaide Rift Complex

Rock formations of the Adelaide Rift Complex are visible in the South Australian Outback. The swirling patterns are composed of folded and faulted sediments that were deposited there in a large basin more than 540 million years ago. Since then, the land folded and faulted to become a large mountain range and then underwent extensive erosion to become the relatively low ranges that we see today. For a sense of scale, this Overview is approximately 100 square miles.
