The ‘Maxicar beds’ is an informal unit of fossiliferous ferruginous sandstones, which outcrops sporadically in the Maxicar area east of Dardanup. The first recorded usage of the name ‘Maxicar beds’ was in Lowry’s (1965) unpublished Record on the southern Perth Basin; the unit was officially described by Playford and Low (1972). Although Lowry (1965) considered the units to be a lateral equivalent of the Donnybrook Sandstone (as defined at that time), Cockbain (1990) considered the Maxicar beds to be a facies within the unit.
