Our geology event

There are still a few places left on the bus next Saturday for our geology excursion.

This should be a fascinating and revealing experience. Our first stop will be the summit of Mount Gaspard at the north of the valley. Mount Gaspard is on private land and the view is immense. Thanks to the generosity of the Huzzey family we will have access to a spectacular panorama of the whole valley and its larger geological setting.
We will travel down the Chinaman’s Creek valley until it connects with the main Muckleford valley and then follow the famous and significant Muckleford Fault south until we conclude our journey at the Muckleford Gorge. Once again we will have access to private land to view this beautiful and surprising place and for that privilege we thank the Garsed family.

The excursion will be led by local geologist Brian Cuffley and maps will be made available to take home.

This is a great opportunity to know our place in a deeper way and to appreciate and see its unique and often hidden qualities.

The excursion will be preceded by our 2015 AGM but there is no requirement to attend the meeting and anyone is welcome to join us for the commencement of the excursion at 1.30pm.

When: Saturday, November 14, 1.30 – 4 pm.
Where: Muckleford Community Centre, Muckleford-Walmer Road (south of the Castlemaine-Maldon Road).

A couple of short walks are involved so it is advisable to wear solid shoes/boots, maybe sock protectors and of course bring a hat and water.
