Abstract

The first description of the geological features of the
coast near Wynyard was given forty years ago by Mr.
T. Stephens in a paper read before this Society entitled: "Remarks on the Geological Structure of Part of North,
Coast of Tasmania, with special reference to the Tertiary Marine
Beds near Table Cape." Proceed. Roy. Soc. Tas., 1869, pag. 17.
Mr. Stephens was therefore the first to recognise
the glacial origin of the "conglomerate" near Wynyard,
and he considers these beds
to be of carboniferous age.
Twenty years later Mr. R. M. Johnston published
his Geology of Tasmania.
