Hong Kong's interesting rock formations and natural landforms are numerous and easily accessible. Many of them are near country trails or within close proximity to urban districts. Such unique advantage makes it ideal for geological discovery and field research. To top it all, most of these attractions are effectively managed and protected because they lie within the borders of country parks or marine parks. They are prized natural assets with conservation, education and recreation value.

Although modest in size, Hong Kong has an impressive showcase of intriguing natural landforms. Amongst these, geological relics in the eastern region is most unique and highly valued by geologists. These famous formations include:
