In the Kingston-Blackmans Bay area, flatly
dipping Permian marine sediments ranging in age
from the Quamby Group (Upper Sakmarian) to
the Ferntree Mudstone (Kazanian) are overlain,
with slight angular discordance, by terrestrial Triassic
sandstone. The sedimentary rocks have been
intruded by Jurassic dolerite in the form of sills
and transgressive sheets. Tertiary faulting, producing
an approximately north-south parallelism
of large-scale structures, preceded volcanic activity
in which basalt flows covered much of the area.
