The Mt Anne massif is characterised by spectacular erosional landforms of glacial origin. Evidence of at least two separate Pleistocene glaciations is preserved in valleys that extend east and south of the massif, and also on nearby Schnells Ridge. There is evidence of a much older glaciation beneath the western slopes of the Mt Anne massif. Dense vegetation in the eastern valleys has inhibited mapping of the Quaternary geology there. These glaciations have influenced postglacial evolution of the landscape, including the advent of prominent karst features and Holocene landslip activity. © 1990, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
