Victoria’s alps on rise

An 18-month seismic survey delving 60 kilometres vertically into the Earth’s crust reveals some surprises about the 629 kilometres of mountain ranges stretching from Benalla in Victoria to Eden in New South Wales.

Seismic technology confirms Victoria’s Alps are rising by about 0.1 mm a year and the uplift of our ranges is due to an ongoing tectonic plate boundary collision in New Zealand.
