We will explore the Earth’s structure, tectonic plates and some famous Australian rocks and how they were formed. The longest extinct volcanic chain in the world, The Cosgrove Track, is located in Australia. We will explore how this was discovered, where it is and how it was formed and continues to get longer. Using some common Victorian examples, the three types of rocks (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic) are investigated.
