BROOMS HEAD GEOLOGICAL TOUR

Brooms Head is a small village on the north coast of NSW, about a half hour drive north of Grafton.  The local headland is an excellent site to view and learn about the structures present in deep water marine sediments, as well as faults and folds.  There are also some excellent outcrops of coffee rock.  Boulders of shallow, non-marine sandstone and conglomerate have been used as erosion barriers along the beach an show a varied range of shallow water structures.

Some parts of the walk should only be attempted at low tide and in good weather conditions.
