Three glacial periods (Ice Ages) have moulded the South Australian landscape. The first ocurred 750 million years ago (Sturtian), the second during Permian Times (ca 280 million years ago) and the last or Great Ice Age which peaked 18,000 years ago. The Hallet Cove region shows evidence of all three glaciations, especially in the Permian when Australia was part of the supercontinent called "Gondwanaland" and existed close to the South Pole. Evidence exists in the form of striated pavements, till, erratics and roche moutonnée. An essential field guide for the area.
