Title

Werribee River in the base of Werribee Gorge

Description

The Werribee River in the base of the Werribee Gorge near Myrniong. The rocks in the river contain white stones mixed with lava, and the white rocks show scratch marks that can be identified under an electron microscope. They indicate these scratch marks were made with pressure from a glacier. These rocks can be found in several other places in the Werribee River over its entire lengh.
