|Sites of geological and geomorphological significance have been selected on the basis either that they represent a specific characteristic of the region, or that they include an outstanding, rare, or possibly unique geological or geomorphological feature. As such, these sites are of interest to people engaged in research and teaching in earth sciences and to others who wish to understand the composition, origin and dynamics of the physical landscape in this area.|
Geological heritage sites, including sites of geomorphological interest and volcanic heritage sites, are under regular revision by the Geological Society of Australia, especially in the assessment of significance and values.
