Australia 2017

Australia Excursion: 03-24 March 2017

Excursions are an important part of the mining engineering curriculum. The Institute of Mining at TU Clausthal has been organising them every three years for decades to destinations all over the world. Certainly, a country with many mines is a must and without question, Australia represents such a destination. This country, or rather the continent, is so large that not all areas and important mines can be visited in one trip. Therefore, this excursion was limited to New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria.

Australia is very far away from Europe and also from almost every other place. It takes more than 20 hours by plane from Germany. But this effort pays off and is rewarded with a great country with beautiful landscapes, warm people, colourful cities and of course interesting mining activities.
