The first day was reserved for making the seven-hour trip to the field site, which students could also take advantage to visit some key locations of regional geological interest on the way down. We met up on arrival at Bermagui Point for the introduction session, where Martin gave some brief information about regional geology. Students were then assigned to work in pairs or groups of 3 and given a Brunton compass and an aerial photo of our allocated site and guide to day 2. At the end of the day, we relaxed and enjoyed our evening at the fully self-contained beach house accommodation.
The last day was reserved for travelling back from the field site and marked the end of the fascinating Bermagui fieldtrip.
A very special thank you to Professor Martin Van Kranendonk for running the course and this fieldtrip.
