Hallett Cove is a coastal suburb in the south of AdelaideSouth Australia, with a population of more than 12,000 people.

Hallett Cove itself, is a small rocky beach, named after John Hallett

The Field River runs out to sea at the southern end. The cliffs to the north are part of the Hallett Cove Conservation Park, featuring Aboriginal artefacts used by the Kaurna tribe and several significant geological features. These include glacial striations on the clifftop discovered by Professor Ralph Tate in 1877, which along with similar striations found earlier at Selwyn’s Rock at Inman Valley, 40 km (25 mi) to the south in 1859, provide evidence for the Permian glaciation of southern Australia, then part of Gondwana. There are also a number of large glacial erratics on the beach.

  3. I have always loved rocks. The difference in their colors, shapes, and striations even when they come from the same shore is very unique. And to think the softest most pliable element water is capable with patience to change the very shape of a rock or quarry. As always I love the photography.
