Find out in a fun and engaging way how geoscience is being applied to Australia’s most important
challenges at Geoscience Australia’s Open Day on Sunday, 18 August, as part of National Science
Discover how earthquakes are detected, pan for gold, sieve for sapphires, tour the building, view
Australia in 3D, become a seafloor detective and talk to the people who work for Australia's national
geoscience research organisation.
Open Day showcases Geoscience Australia’s diverse range of work activities in the fields of
petroleum, mineral, marine, mapping, groundwater and natural hazard research.
During the day, there will be something on offer for the whole family. Children can navigate the
grounds using GPS, take a walk through geological time, make a pet rock, learn the science behind
sediments or bring along a rock from home and have it identified by a geologist.
