The Natural and Social History of Eastern Australia


Travel Blog


We will be in Australia for four weeks, visiting the cities of Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Cairns, and Alice Springs.  Included in this course are: a camping trip to Moreton Island; a cruise on the Great Barrier Reef that will include snorkeling opportunities; and a second camping trip in Central Australia.  Course time will be devoted to field trips to zoos, museums, wilderness areas, and other points of interest; occasional lectures at appropriate sites; and periodic group meetings to discuss students experiences.  Students will keep a journal of their trip, and there will be periodic reading quizzes as the course progresses.  At the course's conclusion, students will prepare a paper on a topic of their choosing.
