Geohistory tours defined
Geohistory tours tell the story of how and why geological processes and climate create the landscapes and resources that dictate the course of human history and culture. Human civilisations have competed for resources and this has caused conflicts and wars over human history.
The mission is to deliver high quality relevant, current information about the geohistory of a locality or region to maximise the visitor’s experience to each place visited on the globe.
The way the many magnificent rock formations and landscapes in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Hong Kong , China and Mongolia has evolved into the concept of a Global perspective for creating Geohistory tours. These tours link people interested in the natural world and how the different resources created through geological process effect the evolution of human civilisations and culture.

Unique Features of Geohisory tours
1.They demonstrate how geological processes create landscapes and resources that are utilised by human civilisations.
2. Geohistory tours incorporate information on how geological process created resources and landscapes and plants and animals that evolved in part from earlier Geological Society field guides, reports, and websites .
3. They are mentioned in a Facebook site containing information about geological activities in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Mongolia.
4. Geohistory tourism links geotourism, ecotourism, geological processes and prevailing climate to the evolution of landscapes and resources on ecology and how these dictate human civilisation and culture.
Geohistory tourism in Queensland:
SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND – KONECT TOURISM phone App.- LOCAL BRISBANE CITY AND ENVIRONS
Compilation of site data and documentation of geological, ecological and human history information about regions of Queensland focusing initially on the Brisbane CBD, North Stradbroke Island, the geohistory of the water storages (Somerset, Wivenhoe and North Pine Dams) and the Redcliffe peninsular north of Brisbane.
Local areas that are suitable for Geohistory tours includes almost all the coastline, the islands of Moreton Bay, adjacent hinterland including the regions around the water supplies for Brisbane city, the scenic rim and the Darling Downs linking geological landscapes to human history.
Ipswich area – coal mining and local history tourism
The Ipswich area with its coal resources and colonial human history links is a fertile ground for geohistory tourism. The documenting of information in the Blackstone Hill area is a recent addition to the human history of this area.
DARLING DOWNS AND MID SOUTHWEST
Field excursions in the region showed the major developments of the coal seam gas resource of the Surat basin and its necessary infrastructure. This would be a great area for regional tourism with the capacity to show how modern human civilisation need the natural energy resources generated by geological processes. The area has a rich history hosting the largest cattle sales in the southern hemisphere and the first discovery of oil in Queensland.
Work in Mongolia included a tour in the vicinity of its capital Ulanbataar showed aspects of the local geology and geological processes and the human history of Mongolia through the stainless steel statue and commemorative museum of Gingis Khan to the human scape of the city developed from being part of the USSR from 1920 to 1990 to its current progress as a democratic republic. An example from a local tourist provider is given in the northern Asia core page.
PAPUA NEW GUINEA
The islands of Papua New Guinea are a region of major potential for geohistory tourism. The reefs, volcanoes, pristine islands, and mountain trekking and are all regions that demonstrate how geological processes create landscapes and how these affect the history of the traditional landowners in these regions.
Areas with major geohistory tourism potential include New Britain (particularly Rabaul), New Ireland and the Feni Islands, and areas on the mainland at Alatou, Tufi, Sogeri, and the Sepik river .
Work in Cape York in 2008 showed there was significant potential for geological resource-style geohistory tourism and including scope for landscape-human history tourism in remote areas including Cape York Peninsula. Travel along the abandoned old telegraph line and visits to Bamaga and north incorporating the most northerly point of the Australian mainland are memorable experiences.
HONG KONG and SOUTHERN CHINA
Work included Geological field excursions covering aspects of geological process creating landscapes were undertaken in the Zaoquing area of southern China and in Hong Kong.
