Abstract

The geology of onshore continental Australia is presented as a series of data sheets in which each geological province or entity is described in terms of key geological parameters: age, size, margins, physiography, elements, stratigraphy, igneous activity, metamorphism, deformation, and economic geology. An outline is given of Australian landforms, and a short geological history is presented. The Bulletin is designed as a ready reference to the geology of Australia and as a companion to regional and continent-wide geological maps.
