Look at Earth in a different color: there was a photo of the mountains of Australia from the satellite

The Flinders Mountains are a classic example of a folded mountain range that forms when

collision of two or more tectonic plates of the Earth - folding and pushing layers of the earth into mountain ranges.

Formation of the Flinders Ridge began around 800million years ago, when the ancient sea left sediments in the Adelaide Basin Geosyncline. Millions of years later, precipitation piled up in the mountains, which have been crumbling ever since. However, the rocks from these deposits remained to create the landscape as we see it today.

The first people to inhabit the Flinders Ridge were the Adnyamathanha people, who lived in this area for tens of thousands of years.

The area depicted here showsWolkatunha Gammon National Park in the Flinders Mountains to the north. Top attractions in this park include deep gorges, chasms, and impressive wilderness. Numerous streams appear as veins throughout the image, while the straight, white lines visible at the bottom right are dirt roads.

The flora of the Flinders Ridge is primarily a species adapted to semi-arid environments, including cypress and pine. After the destruction of the dingo, the number of red kangaroos in the area increased.
