A new 3D geological model of the southern Perth Basin including the offshore was released in 2019, and is the culmination of a project reinterpreting stratigraphic horizons and faults in seismic and drillhole data. The study area stretches from the Rockingham area in the north to Augusta in the south, and extends westwards into the offshore portion of the basin including offshore petroleum wells and as far east as the Darling scarp. The seismic interpretation and geomodel capture some important aspects of this part of the basin, including the immense throw on the Darling Fault (> 12 km in places), the deepening of the basin offshore, and the multiple phases of Gondwanan extension and rifting allowing thick packages of sediment to accumulate.
