The Brisbane Ranges, of which Anakie Gorge is a small part, were formed about 1 million years ago as the result of this earth shift, now called the Rawsley Fault. East of the fault the land sank; to the west it rose. The shift is about 350 metres and is the cause of the rugged landscape and deep gorges with creeks running through them. Parks Victoria have kindly marked the fault-line as I reached near the ridge.
