Event description

Description

Join our scientists and technicians for a series of hands-on activities at the NSW Government’s warehouse of rocks, fossils and minerals.

In operation since 1964, this specially designed building holds over a million metres of drilled rock that records what lies beneath the surface of NSW. This library of drillcore is available for all to ‘read’ and interpret, and you’ll see how high-tech equipment at the centre can help to identify what minerals are in the rock.

See spectacular and unique mineral and rock specimens from around NSW and the globe and marvel at their beauty under the microscope.

Palaeontologists will lead you through the amazing fossil record of past inhabitants of NSW – stretching back over 500 million years.

Anyone with an interest in Earth’s treasures is invited to attend!
