Abstract

The Perth Basin is a north- to north-northwest-trending, onshore and offshore sedimentary basin extending about 1300 km (808 mi) along the southwestern margin of the Australian continent (Figure 21). This large (172,300 km2; 66,525 mi2), structurally complex basin formed during the separation of Australia and greater India in the Permian to Early Cretaceous. It includes a significant onshore component and extends offshore to the edge of continental crust in water depths of up to 4500 m (14,764 ft) (Marshall et al., 1989; Crostella and Backhouse, 2000; Geoscience Australia, 2009c).
