Heritage Talk - Mountains, Volcanoes, Coasts and Caves
From Whangaroa Harbour and the Huka Falls to the Moeraki Boulders and Milford Sound, Aotearoa overflows with extraordinary landforms. This is not a random quirk of nature but a result of the unique and complex geological history of this part of planet Earth.
Geologist Bruce Hayward will base this talk on his latest book, 'Mountains, Volcanoes, Coasts and Caves: Origins of Aotearoa New Zealand's Natural Wonders', which guides readers through 100 natural wonders of Aotearoa – extraordinary landforms, landscapes and coastal features.
With aerial photographs from the book, Bruce will discuss the geology and the 500 million year history of the formation of our small, mostly submerged, part of the world's smallest continent, Zealandia.
No booking is required. Seating is strictly limited on a first-come, first-served basis.
