My name is Lauren and I have worked as a geologist at a gold mine in Regional Victoria for the last 4-5 years. Recently, however, I traded my self-rescuer and hard-hat for a laptop, heading back to university to study a Master of Teaching. Like a lot of people I have a huge passion for hiking and unlike a lot of people, I never hike somewhere without extensively researching the geology and making detailed field notes.
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. This site has been created for anyone (or their five-year-old) who has ever asked a ‘what, how, where or when’ question of the state parks they’ve visited!
