EXCURSION TO SOUTHERN FLEURIEU: Geology by boat and Big Gorge

A 4-hour trip from Wirrina to Cape Jervis and back – travelling at a pace so to allow us to comment on and discuss the cliff formations. The boat can get in close to the cliffs for good sightseeing with photo opportunities.
A half day geological walk along “Big Gorge” which is 4km south of Normanville. It is a 3.5 km return walk adjacent to the Yankalilla River. 
A visit to the Yankalilla Museum which has a diprotodon bone found in the local area.

Ancient fires, ultra-hot rocks and the formation of planets

Date: 6/4/23     Time: 7:45 pm

The student forum has become a regular feature of our programme, giving graduate students from the Department of Earth Sciences an opportunity to tell the FGC about the exciting work that they are doing, and for the FGC to learn how these young and enthusiastic researchers are chipping away at the frontiers of earth science. The forum will take the form of a 15-minute presentation by each of the students followed by discussion with the audience. They will love to have your feedback, and to answer your questions.
