Pyramid Rock

Phillip Island , Victoria.

Pyramid Rock is the name given to a basalt formation located offshore at the end of Pyramid Rd, Phillip Island.
Pyramid Rock itself is a pyramid-shaped tumble of rocks, a remnant of a lava flow that once connected the main outcrop in the foreground to the shore platform.
The pinkish rocks at the base of Pyramid Rock are Devonian Woolamai Granite. These are overlain by black columnar basalts of the Flinders Subprovince.
The home of the Pyramid Rock Festival, one of Australia's premier festivals, it's an area of incredible natural beauty

"Incredible natural beauty" is correct. Pyramid Rock is very well placed here against an astoundingly blue sea and sky.

Pyramid Rock reminds me of the basalt cinder cones you find in the Hawaiian Islands. Is there volcanic activity in this area? Interesting photograph. V

So strange that it's different color of what surrounds it.
globalgadabout12-Oct-2020 00:33
it's like a miniature volcano, and even has black rock...certainly a picturesque spot..
