Bassalt Columns Geological Feature

Also a great spot along the Coastal Pathway to stop and take a photo of the beautiful volcanic rock formation of basalt columns, which are featured in the publication called Created from Chaos: a Geological Trail of 100 Sites in Tasmania

"Attractive basalt columns with almost perfect hexagonal symmetry of cooling joints.

An excellent example of geometric columnar jointing in a tertiary basaltic lava flow exhibiting unique curved "ball and socket" joints across columns."
