Geology Zone

Geology Zone

Deep inside the Earth, there’s a hidden world of blistering heat and shifting plates. Visit an erupting volcano, feel an earthquake’s power, or even see into the core of our planet.

Explore how our planet’s tectonic plates have shaped its landforms and continue to have an impact today. Get up close to an erupting volcano or see how an earthquake can have devastating consequences, and see how tectonic activity is powerful enough to move mountains.

What lies deep down under the soil, beneath the bedrock? Cut open the centre of the Earth to explore what’s driving the forces that shape our seemingly unmoveable continents.
