Geographical Perspective

Uluru was formed 300 million years ago when sand piled up on the bottom of an inland sea that once covered the middle of Australia at Bass Straight. Over the years the wind and rain have beaten against the rock weathering it. Scientist are still mystified of how it was formed.

Jenolan Caves ( Aboriginal Perspective)

The story consisted of two spirtual beings with one snake and eel like creature named Gurangatch and a cat like creature named Mirragan. At the end there were created water systems and waterholes.

Geographical Perspective

Jenolan caves are made from limestone that dissolved from carbon dioxide and organic acids.how limestone dissolves depends on the solubility of the rock, mechanical strength of the rock and the restriction of the solution to structurally controlled zones. Much cave development occurs just below the water table. This type of development is called epiphreatic. Water just below the water table often moves rapidly.

Blue Mountains (Aboriginal Perpective)

The story consisted of three sisters with there father a witch docter. There was a Bunyip that threatened them and found the sisters and to protect the sisters the father used his magic to make the sisters stone and could not reverse the magic as he lost his bone.
