2016 Newcastle Geology Tour

About the Tour

The Newcastle chapter of the AGS is pleased to announce plans for a geology tour in the Lower Hunter Valley. The 2016 excursion will follow a transect across the Lochinvar anticline, beginning with an overview of the lower Hunter Valley from the top of Mount Sugarloaf, and proceeding to follow the Hunter Expressway, to the northwest, with numerous small deviations to observe key features of the adjacent marine and non-marine strata. The highlight of the trip will be a visit to the Quarry Products quarry at Allandale.

To reserve a position on this year’s tour please email the chapter secretary John Johnston.

Further information regarding the tour will be sent to participants prior to the event.
