This very obvious faultline sits on the steep slope of the saddle between Tarn Shelf and Mt Bridges, and is obvious from the lookout mention just above, as well as from several easy vantage points along the shelf.

Tarn Shelf - 13th February 2009
Had a good walk to Tarn Shelf on Friday. Haven't done this walk for a while. It's really good in autumn when the fagus is out, but it was pleasant enough yesterday. Tarn Shelf is just that - a shelf, crowded with large and small glacial lakes half way up the side of the Rodway Range in the Mt Field National Park. The range falls steeply then flattens out across the shelf, and then falls steeply again to Lake Seal and Lake Webster. The shelf itself ranges between about 100m and several hundred metres wide, and it gradually falls from south to north. It extends a little over 2 km between the Rodway Hut and ski tow in the south to Lake Newdegate in the north.
