During the Last Glaciation, the glaciers that developed in the Lake St Clair area were largely controlled by the topography and played only a minor role in shaping the landscape, the most striking glacial features of which were produced during earlier glaciations. The glaciers were subject to continental influences, which resulted in some distinctive depositional and erosional landforms, bur were still of essentially temperate type. In apparent contrast to those in the West Coast Range, the glaciers in the Lake St Clair area retreated systematically in clear stages.
