Year 12 ATAR Geography Excursion

On a sunny but chilly winters day, the Year 12 ATAR Geography students ventured out of the classroom on our final field excursion.

The intrepid geographers, along with Mrs March and Mr Diamond, began their day in the CBD before crossing the river and heading south to Cockburn Central, an example of a strategy to combat Perth’s urban sprawl. We then headed back to the CBD to further investigate examples of urban processes and urban renewal strategies in Elizabeth Quay, East Perth and the Perth City Link. Our final trek through Northbridge, in the inner mixed zone, did indeed open our eyes to the mix of land-uses and pedestrians in this diverse zone.

A final and fabulous end to two years of studying Geography.
