River gorge, entrenched meander, pocket alluvium and a major fault lineament.
Tom Groggin Track.
Movements on the Buenba Fault have markedly affected the landforms in the area. A scarp cut in Ordovician sediments forms a prominent lineament trending north-east, while to the west of the scarp, Buenba Creek has cut a gorge distinctive for its entrenched meanders. Drainage disruption by the fault has resulted in the formation of pockets of alluvium, separated by area of greater stream gradient and steeper valley side slopes.
Local. Area provides a further example of faulting which is prominent in the Eastern Highlands of Victoria.
Because of the area covered by the site, the value of the significant geological/ geomorphological features is unlikely to be seriously reduced by localised land disturbance.
