Du Cane Range pond, Overland Track, Tasmania, Australia.
The Du Cane Range reflects in a pond on the Overland Track, in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania, Australia. The most extensive dolerite formations in the world dominate the landscape of Tasmania, where magma intruded into a thin veneer of Permian and Triassic rocks over perhaps a million years during the Jurassic breakup of supercontinent Gondwana in the Southern Hemisphere, forming vast dolerite/diabase sills and dike swarms. (North American geologists use the term diabase instead of dolerite to refer to the fresh, unaltered rock.) The Tasmanian Wilderness was honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, expanded in 1989.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
