The Geological Society of Australia (SA Division) plans to provide easy-to-understand field information on South Australian geology to all those interested in the earth sciences.

This public information is offered in the form of guides to specific localities or regions within South Australia that are of special interest for educational purposes.

Each brochure will focus on a specific region and geological theme.

All brochures are offered in simple A4 sheets that may be conveniently reproduced and readily utilised during field inspections. These sheets are also freely available for printing and folding into three for placement in a brochure stand. Reading of all brochures will be assisted by use of the Geological Time Scale that is provided at the above link.

These brochures have been prepared under the auspices of the Field Guide Subcommittee of the Geological Society of Australia (SA Division).

Enquiries regarding these field brochures may be directed to:
