2022 AGM and presentation on the University of Wollongong Large Diameter Core Display

PD Hours
Join our August Tech Talk to discuss the story behind and geological history of the UoW Large Diameter Core Display. 

About this event

A large diameter core donation of strata, taken from above and below the Wongawilli Seam, presents a remarkable picture and inspired a core display of unique proportions. The Hawkesbury Sandstone is a massive deposit that spans a significant proportion of the Sydney Basin, its history is fascinating. The end result is an extraordinary display and a great teaching aid. Listen as Penny Williamson, Dr Brian Jones and Rod Doyle relate the story.
