rakis table


A significant landscape feature that forms a flat ‘table-top’ made of Raki Siltstone.

Rakis Table is a significant landscape feature that forms a flat ‘table-top’ made of Raki Siltstone.  There is a fantastic place to view Rakis table from the intersection of Peaks and Conlans Road – safety first – this road is shared between cyclists and vehicle users – make sure you stand off the road.  Raki Siltstone was deposited around mid-Eocene (approximately 42 million years ago) in a marine environment.

Historically this site was the location of experimenting with rain making in the late 19th Century.  Incredibly dynamite was used to seed the clouds.  The desired outcome was not achieved.
