Abstract

Glacier ice diverted the courses of the upper Que and Bulgobac Rivers from a direct
route to the Pieman River through the Que Gorge to the Huskisson River. The diversion
probably occurred in the Early Pleistocene but the drainage pattern established was maintained
and perhaps accentuated by further glaciation during the Middle Pleistocene. The
modern drainage pattern is a palimpsest of that which existed by late Middle Pleistocene
times.
