Australia's Canyons, Gorges, and Erosional Features
The large canyons and gorges of Australia show evidence of massive erosion from catastrophic flooding on a large, widespread scale. In Australia many large eroded canyons, gorges eroded through mountain ranges, buttes, and erosional features give great evidence for the Genesis Flood. The Three Sisters formation in southeast Australia near Sydney features the iconic three rock pillars surrounded by large gorges that could only have been carved by catastrophic flooding. These canyons and gorges contain rivers and streams that are much smaller than the canyons that they flow through and give strong evidence of a large surge of floodwater erosion in the past. Erosional terraces can be seen on each side of the canyon where the rock layers are exposed. Large eroded hills and other erosional features can be seen throughout the valleys of these large canyons. Many of the large canyons have vertical or near vertical walls, giving strong evidence for rapid and catastrophic erosion at a previous time. A "gentle or tranquil" flow of water would not produce canyons with vertical walls and only a rapid, catastrophic surge of water such as produced by the global Flood of Genesis could produce the strength necessary to carve these walls.
