Fingal Head boasts some of the most spectacular examples of columnar jointing to be found.
The local indigenous Goodjingburra people name for Fingal Head is Booninybah - Home of the Giant Echidna. The spectacular columns of Fingal Head resemble the spines of an echidna, so the Goodjingburra believe that the spirit of the echidna inhabits the headland.
The columnar basalt lava flow at Fingal Head extends underwater to Cook Island. The lava is thought to have come from the prehistoric Tweed Volcano.
The jointing, clearly evident at Fingal Head is caused as lava cools.
You can just see Cook Island in the background.
Fingal Head is an amazing place to visit.
