Sealion Island - Geology

Gently inclined beds of sandstone and mudstone make up Sea Lion Island. The rocks were originally deposited as layers of sand and mud in a very large, deep lake about 250 million years ago. On some of the mudstone beds thin, meandering lines can be seen. These are the traces made by soft-bodied animals and possibly fish, as they grazed across the muddy lakebed.

Sea Lion Lodge accommodates up to 20 persons and group discounts are available. Prices are per person and include full board at the lodge.
