The Organising Committee are pleased to announce the introduction of a pre-conference field trip showcasing Perth’s regional geology highlights. The field trip will be held on Sunday 31 March and will travel by coach from the Perth CBD. The tour will head to the rugged Darling Range to the East of Perth and visit Canning Dam, its quarry and the surrounds. We will then return to the centre of Perth for lunch at the iconic Old Swan Brewery. After lunch we will visit King’s Park where significant slope remediation has been undertaken in recent years. We will then head to the magnificent Indian Ocean Coastline with its coastal limestones in Fremantle at the historic Round House and Whalers Tunnel. From Fremantle we will return to the Perth CBD by coach. For those on the tour wishing to sample some local culture, an alternative ending is available with a visit to Little Creatures Brewery to end the day joined by members of the Local Organising Committee, returning to the Perth CBD slightly later in the day.
