Bermagui is widely considered by geological students to be the hardest field trips you will ever go on. Whilst it is not physically intensive, the mental intensity more than makes up for the low physical demands. This field trip is set for five days but runs for effectively three days, as the first and last days are reserved for making the seven hour trip to and from the field site. Upon arrival you are divided into teams of four, each given a brunton compass and an aerial photo of your allocated site, and by the first night you are deciding what you want to look at in your area. The next three days become a blur of geological data, where hundreds of strike and dip measurements of beds, faults and folds are taken, along with records of primary and secondary structures. Geologically speaking, Bermagui has been highly deformed over many millions of years and so provides an excellent example of multiple deformation events, with 2+ generational folds present in many of the areas.
