The count-down is on to Geoscience Australia’s annual Open Day on Sunday 23 August 2015, when the community are invited to see, learn and explore the diverse range of work carried out by Australia’s national geoscience agency.
The open day will be an opportunity to explore the work being done by Geoscience Australia scientists to provide geospatial information develop Australia’s resource wealth, better prepare communities for natural disasters, enhance Australia’s water security, manage Australia’s vast marine jurisdiction and grow the geoscience knowledge of Australia.
Geoscience Australia’s 2015 Open Day will offer a diverse program of free hands-on activities, science displays and talks for all ages. This family focused event provides a great opportunity to showcase our work to the public and to broaden the community’s understanding of the importance of geoscience in everyday life; and hopefully inspire some of our younger visitors to become our nation’s future geoscientists.

Geoscience Australia will also offer four special tours of its building and collections as part of our National Science Week at various times between Monday 17 and Thursday 20 August. Book tours via Eventbrite.
