The soils vary from mountain sandstone marked by granite intrusions, and shale at lower altitudes in the coastal zone with predominantly shale and river deposits in the interior. The soils on gently undulating hills towards the sea consist of coarse bleached sand and gravel. The soil types on gently undulating shale landscapes adjacent to granite mountain ranges vary from weathered stony residual soils on hill crests, to slopes of strongly structured soils with a weathered shale substrata.
