Foraminifera- and mollusc-bearing estuarine sediments were encountered in one of a series of auger holes drilled in Late Pleistocene interglacial sands at Mussel Roe Bay, northeastern Tasmania. It is proposed that the estuary formed behind a bay-mouth barrier similar to that presently occurring between Mussel Roe Bay and Great Mussel Roe Bay.
