Day 7 - Holidaymakers on shaky ground

Day 7 - Holidaymakers on shaky ground
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

THE MOUNTAINS inland from the Sunshine Coast is Jurassic sandstone, deposited as sand along what was the subantarctic coast of Gondwanaland. The the main fault line between the Australian and Zealandia continents ran just a couple of hundred kilometres offshore when the two continents split apart when Gondwanaland split apart into the modern continents around 60 million years ago. At some point following the initial split, the major fault line almost completely sealed with a new fault line formed down the middle of the Zealandia Continent as it was pulled in all directions sinking most of its land underwater. The new fault line formed what is now New Zealand, with the Australian plate now moving northwards in a collision course with South East Asia. Earthquakes are rare from the old fault line, but they do still occur.

Today's trek takes me along the beach before heading inland over the lower everglades before crossing the Noosa River to head back downstream to Noosa Beach. From there I head over the Noosa Heads to Sunshine Beach.
