Geoscience Australia regularly hosts a series of public talks for a range of technical and general audiences delivered by leaders in their respective fields, including the Geoscience Australia Wednesday Seminars and Distinguished Geoscience Australia Lecturer (DGAL) series. A selection of these talks are filmed and are available online for on demand viewing after the presentation. Subscribe to receive details of upcoming talks via email.
To ensure the health and wellbeing of the public and our staff, the presentations will now be via online webinars. This means you will be able to enjoy the presentations from your own home, but you will need to register beforehand in order to receive reminder notices and a link to each seminar. Registering for the next scheduled Wednesday Seminar is quick and easy, via the "Register now" button below. For later seminars, we recommend using the “auto-subscribe to future webinars” option when registering for any Wednesday Seminar, to avoid having to return here to register for every individual seminar.
