Trivia: What does the “Form” or “Formation” in Coffs Form. or South Junction Formation mean? – A ‘formation’ (or ‘form.’) comprises the top of embankments and base of cuttings on which a railway or tramway track was laid to take timber to a local mill. The railways themselves have largely disappeared leaving the ‘forms’ as reminders of the earlier logging days. They are common in the southwest forests and have often been later converted for 4WD/forestry vehicle use (and partly for easy, levelled walking tracks!).
