Cyber Library Geo Hotspots

The Club was formed in 1971 to promote and engage in the study of geology by means of lectures and field excursions, and to encourage the preservation of areas of geological importance. Professional qualifications in geology are not a pre-requisite for membership. Although the study
of geology is our primary aim we take a serious interest in plants, birds and animals that are encountered on our excursions, and the cosmos in general.


Through the co-operation of professional geologists the Club has a programme of lectures which are held at 7.45 pm on the first Thursday of each month, except December and January, in the Mawson Lecture Theatre, Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Adelaide. Usually there are prelecture activities, beginning at 6.30pm, which may include mineralogy workshops or geological videos.

Day excursions to some areas of interest around Adelaide are held on a monthly basis (by bus or car) and are led by professional geologists. Longer camps, sometimes at interstate localities, are held at Easter, in August or September, and on some long weekends. Details of all excursions are published in the Club's monthly Bulletin and members are encouraged to publish reports of lectures and field excursions in the Bulletin .

The Club is a family club and children are encouraged to attend both lectures and excursions to learn more about their environment. However, as field trips are often to old mining areas, quarries and clifftops which are inherently dangerous, children should be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times for their own safety.
