We enjoy a range of field trips.
We conduct fossicking, panning and visits to sites of geological interest in our local area, usually on the second Monday of the month.
Weekend excursions are held regionally and sometimes extended interstate fossicking trips are undertaken.
Field trips are conducted with necessary approvals, licences and permits, and our members are covered by our club’s insurance.
Our last trip was to the Oberon district to look for sapphires.
Another great trip, late last year, was to Ulladulla to explore the rock platform and learn about the geological history of the area.
Walking along the Time Walk pathway, we examined rocks from the last 500 million years.
