Heritage Place Details

Map Show Map
Accuracy L - low level confidence
Development Plan Land Not Within a Council Area (Flinders)
Polygon Type S - parcel that has been split (because it has more than one heritage item on it
Details (Known As) Enorama Diapir Locality - Diapir Reef Complex (designated place of geological significance), Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park
Registered Name Enorama Diapir Locality - Diapir Reef Complex - designated place of geological significance - Flinders Ranges National Park
Significance This updated and enlarged site contains clear exposures of the contacts between the Enorama Diapir and the algal reefs which grew along its shores about 640 million years ago when the Diapir was an island. These relationships demonstrate that the Enorama Diapir had intruded up through the sea floor to be above sea level at that time. This information is of considerable significance to the debate on the origin of the diapirs of the central Flinders Ranges, and, in particular, on their subsequent movements.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
