Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks to understand the world - its human and physical features - through an understanding of place and location. Students study where things are and how they got there. Geography looks at the spatial connection between people, places, and the earth.

Stage 4 Geography is a field of study which gives students opportunities to critically assess the ideas and opinions of others and to form and express their own ideas and arguments. In doing so, it forms a basis for active participation in community life, ecological sustainability, creating a just society, promoting intercultural understanding and lifelong learning. Through the study of civics and citizenship, students develop knowledge of the decision-making processes that exist at a variety of scales, which informs them of ways they can participate as responsible and informed members of society.

In Stage 5, students study aspects of Australia’s population. Through the study of Australia’s demography, students reveal patterns of a growing, multicultural and ageing population. Geographical issues affect all parts of Australia’s environment— both physical and human. Our students take the role to investigate where and why these geographical issues occur, consider the views and opinions of people about the issues, and formulate management solutions to them.
