Natural History of the Northeastern Sydney Basin

The focus of the 2021 field symposium will be on the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park north of Sydney and surrounding regions in the Northeastern Sydney Basin, bounded to the north by the Hunter River, the coastline to the east, Sydney Harbour to the south, and extending west as far as the Putty Road on the boundary of Yengo National Park. Much of the area lies within the distinctive lower Triassic Hawkesbury Sandstone outcrop with its spectacular geomorphology and characteristic floral communities, contrasting with those developed on the underlying lower Triassic Narrabeen Group and upper Permian rocks in the Hunter Valley. On the Central Coast large coastal lakes provide important freshwater and brackish water habitats. Two days of scientific and general interest talks and presentations on current research into the geology and geodiversity, flora and fauna, and other aspects of the natural history of this extensive region will be followed by a day-long field trip exploring aspects of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
