Usage: Described (p137, p139, p165, p169, p170, p174-p176) Min age from reference: Permian Max age from reference: Permian Comments: Named after Purnoo Lookout. Overlies a ravinement surface. 0.5 -1.8m thick. Basal to the Nowra sandstone, generally recessive outcrop. Type section mentioned. Age from parent unit. , Nowra Sandstone , Conformably overlies Wandrawandian Formation, Snapper Point Formation, may be overlain by Berry Siltstone , Clast to matrix supported pebble-cobble conglomerate. Clasts range from well rounded to angular. Angular boulders occur where it is basal to the Nowra Sandstone. The matrix is poorly sorted quartz sandstone to granule conglomerate.
