First Wednesday of every month

What's That? Wednesdays: Rocks, Minerals and Fossils

Discovery Centre

Drop in to the Discovery Centre on the first Wednesday of the month to speak to our resident experts.

'What is this rock?’ is a commonly asked question here at the South Australian Museum.

To help answer your questions – and celebrate the diversity of the geological world – we’ll be running 'What's That? Wednesdays: Rocks, Minerals and Fossils' on the first Wednesday of each month in the Discovery Centre (Level One) between 3.30pm-4.30pm.

If you have a favourite rock or a fossil you'd like to be identified or verified, our expert geologist will be on hand to answer as many queries as possible and help explain these fascinating natural wonders.

For other identification enquiries, visit our Identification FAQs page.
