Abstract

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.
