This location is a relic of an underwater volcano from about 32 – 36 million years ago.
During the Eocene, more of Zealandia was below sea level than at the present day. During this time, submarine volcanoes were active along the present-day coastal section of the Waitaki Whitestone Geopark.
At Bridge Point, a nearby, likely short-lived volcano erupted around 32 – 36 million years ago. The volcano was subsequently eroded, creating an environment for marine life and the accumulation of marine sediments.
