About

WELCOME

This site has been created for anyone (and their 5 year old) who has ever asked about the ‘what, how, where or when’ of the rocks and landscape of State parks they’ve visited on their weekends.

Start with the interactive map and think about where you’d like to go on the weekend. Select a State Park and bookmark the guide for that park. Then you’re all set to head off and explore the eons!

CREATOR AND AUTHOR: LAUREN SWANN

I am an Exploration Geologist working in regional VIC and NSW. I am also studying a Master of Teaching part-time. I create these guides with help from numerous other Geologists and also my younger sisters. The ‘would they spend their weekend here’ test is invaluable to the development of these sites and trails.

I firmly believe that nature and the outdoors is essential for good health, and the only way to really appreciate and understand geology – or any natural science – is in the field.

SUPPORTED BY
