- Upcoming Excursion and Lecture -

Round the Bend at Morgan: From an Ancient Seabed to the Modern Murray

Dates:  Saturday 29th to Sunday 30th June 2019

Leader:  Mike Burrell

On this weekend excursion we will explore a wealth of River Murray geological sites around Morgan. The Murray Basin is one of Australia's largest sedimentary basins covering an approximate area of 300,000 km2. In particular, we will look closely at the many types of marine fossils present and see how many we are able to identify. 

What is that mountain made of?

Date: Thursday 4th July 2019

Speaker: Michael Vnuk

Are there marine fossils at the top of Mt Everest? Why does Table Mountain have a flat top? When did the volcanoes forming Kilimanjaro, Fujiyama and Vesuvius last erupt and are they likely to erupt again?
