Students in Year 4 studied the changing landscape in the Springbrook mountains on Tuesday as part of their recent inquiry. They improved their understanding on how, 'Earth surfaces change as a result of natural processes and human activity'. 

The students hiked to Purling Brook Falls and observed the rock formations, vegetation changes, rainforest plants, erosion and weathering and finally human impacts on the stunning ancient landscape.  

From the vista of the Best of all Lookout, students looked out to notice the caldera formation from Mt Warning and how the landscape looked from above with noticeable differences to soils and rocks, vegetation and of course the impacts of weathering and erosion over millions of years.
