Wyalup-Rocky Point

Wyalup-Rocky Point

Many of the epic rock formations around Australia’s South West are a variation of a granite outcrop. But, not at Wyalup (Rocky Point) in Bunbury. The dark and column-like rock found along the beach is basalt, AKA lava rock. Legend has it that Bunbury Senior High School sits atop the volcano that spewed the solidified lava we see on the beach today, but that’s all it is – a legend. The rock actually comes from the Kerguelen large igneous province, which erupted approximately some 130 million years ago and now sits on the floor of the Indian Ocean.
