Projects Overview

As well as all our regular activities (trips, lectures, school geography competition, etc), RGSQ commits resources to a major projects. For more information on these, please follow the links on the left.

An on-going project is Queensland by Degrees: a community geography. RGSQ members, students and other community members visit and record geographical descriptions of the 185 points in Queensland where whole degree lines of latitude and longitude intersect. There are some points where we would still like more information. Follow the link to see how you can be involved.

Over the last 20 years RGSQ has run major interdisciplinary research projects to environmentally significant, but difficult to access, parts of Queensland. These have resulted in major publications.

The reports from the scientific studies are our major publishing output but we have also published other monographs and posters and brochures to promote geography in schools.

Flinders 2002 relates to the bicententary of Flinders' circumnavigation of Australia. There is still a lot of relevant material – teaching units, extracts from Flinders' journal, illustrations.
