Organic-rich sands and silts estimated to be about 25 000 to 40 000 years in age indicate that alpine-subalpine herb, shrub and heath vegetation communities occurred at 250 m altitude in the King Valley prior to the maximum phase of the Last Glaciation. Mean temperature was probably SC colder than at present and the climate was wet.
