We bring together people who are interested in geography – in a deeper understanding of the world around them. We organise a diverse programme of lectures and trips. We are passionate about geographical education, and run an Australia-wide school competition. We always have a major project on the go.

Mike West claims to have been good at Geography at school but he still not sure of the difference between Geography and Geomorphology which was so vital in listing Fraser Island on World Heritage.
He has had a long involvement in Fraser Island (K’Gari) and is credited with discovering the island’s only endemic animal, the Satinay Sand Skink.
He is preparing a documentary of “The Hidden Secrets of Fraser Island” and will give the Society a sneak preview.
