Abstract: The Holocene sand barrier of Younghusband Peninsula is a modern analogue of older Pleistocene barriers preserved in the landscape in the South East of South Australia. Previous studies undertaken on the coastal morphodynamics and archaeology of this peninsula provide clues to the evolution and age of selected parts of the southern and central barrier. However, very little is known about the chronological evolution of the northern part of the peninsula. This paper aims to synthesise current knowledge on the age of the Younghusband Peninsula and to provide new data from its northern extremity. Chronological data for this northern section are compared with data from the more southerly sections and the relevance of these is discussed in the context of a model of barrier evolution for the Younghusband Peninsula.
