The Sunshine Coast has had a complex and often violet geological history, spanning more than 300 million years.  “Even in the last 800, 000 years, sea levels have fluctuated dramatically, resulting in major changes to the shoreline and coastal scenery. Those ancient events have determined the present rock formations, minerals, soils, topography, vegetation, and even our present use of land in the district”. (Rocks and Landscapes of the Sunshine Coast, Warwick Willmott).

Join us as Warwick shares his extensive geological knowledge of this amazing region and what lies under our feet.
