On Tasman Peninsula, south-eastern Tasmania, almost horizontal Permian marine and Triassic
non-marine rocks were intruded by Jurassic dolerite, faulted and overlain by Tertiary basalt
Marine processes operating on the Jurassic and older rocks have produced a cliffed coastline
with many erosional features widely noted for their grandeur and rarity. These features form
a self-renewing economic asset.
