When Dorothea MacKellar wrote the poem "My Country" she was referring to our country ...Australia:
"I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding plains..."
All of this and more is the province of geography.
This course examines what is geography and delves into both the human and physical aspects including geology, meteorology, climatology, geomorphology, hydrology, as well as cultural, political and urban geography, the environment, protected areas, economic and social geography.
The course will also include a study of the lands, features, inhabitants and phenomena of the Earth, with the aim of understanding the Earth and some of its human and natural complexities, not merely where things are, but also how they have changed and come to be, concentrating on those aspects as they apply to Australia.
