Geoscience Australia

Visit our Education Centre at Geoscience Australia and explore the wonders of geoscience.

The Education Centre offers curriculum-linked education programmes designed to immerse visiting school-aged students in hands-on geoscientific activity. General and custom-made programmes are available to suit individual group needs, ensuring the best possible outcome for students.

Programme themes may include:

  • natural hazards
  • rocks and minerals
  • plate tectonics
  • geography and mapping
  • history of the Earth, including an outdoor geological ‘TimeWalk’.

Geoscience Australia is home to the National Mineral Collection, which is on permanent public display. A café is onsite and welcomes visitors. The building has wheelchair access and toilet facilities.
