Students bushwalking
Students at coastline

Second part was observing and taking notes on the geology of the Newcastle coastline.  Sites included Nobbys Headland, Strzelecki Lookout and Merewether Headland and rock platform.  Here, students examined the rock formations and the sequences of rock, the geologic history of each formation including the breakup of Australia and Zealandia which led to the formation of Australia's east coast. 

The weather was superb and the students had a wonderful time!!
