This basin is one of a series of Mesozoic-Cainozoic depocentres that developed along the southern margin of Australia during the period of extension and passive margin evolution during the Middle-Late Jurassic. There are 5 main depocentres in the basin - Duntroon Basin, Ceduna Basin, Bremer Basin, Eyre Sub-Basin and Recherche Sub-basin. The Denmark Sub-basin in the far west of the basin, is a lesser known extensional depocentre.
