Fernvale Futures Centre


GSAQ is running a one-day field trip to the Esk Valley in October, as detailed below


The town of Esk, the administrative centre for the Somerset Region, sits squarely in the centre of the elongate upper Brisbane Valley. The main features of the landscape are the Valley itself, ranges to the east and west, and the Mount Glen Rock, Mount Esk and Burrundun Mountain complex on the eastern fringes of the town.

This day trip excursion aims to cover geological features of the Esk Valley region including the Triassic sequences of the Esk basin, margins constrained by older meta-sediments to the east and west of the basin, overlying sediments of the Moreton basin in the south and spectacular volcanic intrusions.
