The deepest rocks in the vicinity of Phillip Island, indeed in Victoria, are related to the exposed fold belts of eastern Australia.1 These were deposited rapidly early during the global Flood (Genesis 6–8) under the ocean. There was a large volume and variety of materials deposited including fine silt, poorly sorted [...]
The Consuelo Tableland to the north of Carnarvon Gorge would have been one of the first areas of land to emerge in Queensland as the waters of Noah’s Flood were receding from Australia. A rough calculation shows it would have been at least 224 days after the Flood began before the tableland emerged. The receding [...]
Carnarvon Gorge sits at the junction of two major sedimentary basins, the Surat and Bowen basins. This is illustrated in the geological section to the left1 which looks to the north west and cuts through the south wall of Carnarvon Gorge just east of its entrance.
The sedimentary strata to the west (left) of the [...]
Tourists to the spectacular Carnarvon Gorge in Central Queensland, Australia, are told that Carnarvon Creek, carved the Gorge. When you look at the size of the gorge, with its inner walls reaching up 200 metres and the outer walls in the far distance rising 600 metres, it’s seems beyond belief that the creek could do that job. [...]
The standard explanation for Carnarvon Gorge in Central Queensland, Australia, is that Carnarvon Creek, which flows through the Gorge, shaped it over millions of years. However, there are many features about the Gorge that contradict this story, but are explained by the receding waters of Noah’s Flood. In order to appreciate these we need to [...]
Carnarvon Gorge is a spectacular natural wonder in the semi-arid heart of Central Queensland, 600 kilometres northwest of Brisbane. At its mouth the Gorge sits 600 metres below a basalt plateau. The boulder-strewn Carnarvon Creek winds through its 22 kilometre1 length. The Gorge sits at the junction of two major geological basins (See Figure 3 [...]
