Location: Benalla, Victoria, Australia

This conference, held in Benalla in September 2017, will bring together granite experts from around the world, from universities and industry in Australia, plus many who have worked on the iconic White and Chappell granite terrains of south-east Australia.

In collaboration with the Geological Society of Australia specialist group, there will be lecture sessions dedicated to non-granite igneous rocks, and another session will be for local non-specialist scientists interested in their country 'backyards'. That 'backyard' is in fact the Strathbogie Ranges comprised of the cordierite-bearing Strathbogie granite and Violet Town Volcanic Complex. Field trips will include the new ideas evolving through current field work and laboratory studies in Australian universities and South Africa.
