The application of numerical dating methods to Australian regolith is reviewed. Pre-Tertiary ages from oxygen isotopes, paleomagnetism and stratigraphic dating confirm the great antiquity of regolith in a number of regions. However, while long-term erosion and rock weathering rates in many parts of Australia are low by world standards, they are not low enough to allow pre-Tertiary regolith and landforms to survive without burial and exhumation.
