Profile of layered calcareous sandstone exposed by wind weathering on the coast at Blairgowrie, Nepean Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. The geology of the Nepean Peninsula is known as the Bridgewater Formation, a fine to coarse fossiliferous calcareous sand, calcarenite. Exposed to the Bass Strait, as here, it forms steep cliffs which are slowly eroded by wind, to reveal the sedimentary structure. Inland from the clifftops is an aeolian dune system, densely vegetated.
