Karijini National Park

The Rock formations in the Karijini national park are among some of the oldest in the world . Formed over 2.5 billion years ago as iron and silica-rich deposits on an ancient sea-floor. Over millions of years these deposits were subjected to pressure from additional deposits laid on top of them. This pressure forced out the water and converted the sediments into tough, well-bedded rock. Horizontal compression later buckled the rocks, causing numerous vertical cracks . A sharp drop in sea-level then gave the rivers added impetus to cut down through the land and create gorges.
