These pages showcase the amazing variety of rocks and historical mining areas in Victoria.

These pages are designed for non-Geologists but will be of great interest to Geologists and geology students.  Some background knowledge of geology is needed to comprehend these pages, so if the words "anticline", "granodiorite", "Ordovician" or "turbidite" are foreign to you, I suggest you read over an introductory geology web page or wait until I get around to adding one.

The pages are based on site visits made through working for various companies in Central Victoria, but especially from University field trips from the now extinct Geology degree from the La Trobe University Bendigo.

The pages are roughly separated into field trips taken from a Bendigo base.  A good day can be spent looking at the geology in the Bendigo area.   Similarly, good day trips can be made to Heathcote and Castlemaine.  Other trips may take a little longer.

Linex occasionally run introductory geology courses at Learning City Bendigo and guides school groups and provides the occasional free tag-along tour to some of these areas on an as needs basis.  For further information, please email Rodney Boucher
