I was randomly exploring Google Earth when I came across some sort of rock formation in northern Australia. The location of the rock formation with respect to Australia is shown below. It is in or near Starcke national park.
Of course it seems absurd (to me) to think a glacier could have existed there anytime even remotely recent in geologic history. But there's a rock formation there that looks like it has been carved up by a glacier. Here's a screenshot of google earth satellite data of the rock formation in question:
Notice the clear distinction between the "carved land" and the vegetation to the south and west, this is one of the traits I find confusing about this structure.
I tried researching the park to see if there is a scientifically accepted origin for this formation, but all I learned is that it is apparently made from sandstone, and the region is noted for being very rugged.
I'm not a geologist, so I might be missing some important info that could help, but I have at least a basic understanding of geology from a few electives I've taken in college. I know that glaciers carve up the land, and when they retreat, they leave behind a mess of jagged rocks and lakes that are aligned in the direction of flow of the former glacier. The above picture seems to show just that: there is a clear sense of direction of the lakes and rocks.
Additionally, I was able to find one other similar formation about 400km (~250 miles) north east up the Australian coast (measured as a straight line) near the Sir Charles Hardy Islands. I would show a pic of that as well, but I'm limited because I'm new here.
Other than these two formations, I was unable to find any other examples. Both formations highly contrast their surroundings and both seem to be "smeared" in roughly the same direction.
For reference, look closely at the land in northern Canada and Europe, where glaciers are known to have existed geologically recently. (Again, I had pics but I can't post them.)
Does anyone know how the formation in question was created? If not does anyone have a strong educated guess about what might have caused it? Thanks in advance.
