Abstract

Trip Description: Miocene mafic volcanic units display nature of explosive and eruptive processes and mantle-derived materials with abundant xenocrysts and ultramafic xenoliths. Quarry outcrops display mafics ranging from hawaiites, olivine nephelenites, leucite basanites to nepheline benmoreites. Excellent and sometimes complex exposures.

Highlights: Scenery of the Great Dividing Range, the Garden City of Toowoomba and volcanic centres.

Trip Leaders: Dr Edwin Wiley and Dr Benjamin Cohen.
