Geoscience Australia

The Geoscience Australia  Education Centre offers curriculum-linked education programs designed to immerse students in hands-on geoscientific activities. Facilitated by experienced educators, general and custom-made programs are available to suit individual group needs, ensuring the best possible outcome for students. 

Program themes may include:

  • Natural hazards.

  • Plate tectonics.  
  • Geography and mapping.
