The Tessellated Pavement of Tasmania

This isn’t a road or a sculpture, but a naturally occurring rock formation on the Australian island of Tasmania. It’s called the Tessellated Pavement of Eaglehawk Neck. It consists of slabs of siltstone that began eroding at the edges between 60 and 160 million years ago.
