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.
* Lecture Programme Changes. Please note changes to this year’s Lecturer programme, now:
August 5: Adj Assoc Prof Geoffrey Woolcock: Child-Friendly Cities
October 7: Dr Kerrie Wilson, Allocating Limited Resources to Protect Biodiversity
*Congratulations to the four students who have represented Australia at the International Geography Olympiad, which was held in Krakow, Poland, 12-18 August 2014:
We have had an outstanding medal tally: Janice came third, Stephen received a gold medal, Oscar received a silver medal and Leon received a bronze medal. Like in other subject Olympiads, medals are given in bands, not just one of each. That means Australia has come 2nd!! Well done to all our participants for making this Olympiad a success.
