Clarke Head

The cliffs west of Clarke Head bear witness to the tectonic power that brought continents together to form the ‘One Earth’ called Pangea. The geological structures, which have drawn geologists to ponder their origin, look like they might have been imagined by Dr. Suess. Even for the non-specialist, a walk along the cliffs and sea stacks of Clarke Head is unforgettable.

What is a Geopark?

A Geopark is a designation that attracts tourists wishing to explore the connections between geology, local communities, culture, and nature. Geoparks are designed to promote tourism and celebrate a region’s uniqueness, and do not prohibit any land use.
