Campus Geosites @ Otago

Interactive exercises based around geologically interesting sites on and near the University of Otago campus and surroundings. The University of Otago campus and surroundings are rich in geological heritage, and a wide range of rock types and geological concepts can be taught and explored by carefully observing building materials, ornamental and landscaping stones, and natural rock outcrops.

Outreach at Otago Geology
