Hong Kong Geopark Visitor Centre

With the support by the LIONS Nature Education Foundation, the Hong Kong Geopark Visitor Centre introduces the geological history of both Hong Kong and the attractions of geopark. Interactive elements are used to present the geological messages in an easy-to-understand way, with special designs to cater for the needs of both children and adults.

**Newly renovated exhibition hall is open to public visit.

Major highlights include:

1. The oldest outcrops in the world (3.9 billion years old rock from Acasta Gneiss in Canada) and in China (3 billion years old rock from Baijiafen Gneiss) on display;

2. Hand-made 3D miniature models of key geological features in Hong Kong: visualise the formation of geological features from “a giant’s view”;

3. Explore the Rock Cycle through “The many adventures of magma”: a fun and light-hearted interactive display;

4. Showcase of culture and historical items of people in Sai Kung: learn about the intangible culture heritages within the Sai Kung Volcanic Rock Region.

Rock Academy

This is Hong Kong’s first outdoor display of 28 large specimens of local rocks. It is a comprehensive collection of Hong Kong’s major volcanic, granitic and sedimentary rocks, and allows visitors of all ages to learn about, observe and touch the varied rocks of Hong Kong in one place. The trail is wheelchair accessible and the interpretation panels are also in Braille. An activity folder called “Rock Academy” has been published to help children learn more about rocks in or away from the centre.

Rock Classroom

The Rock Classroom is an activity room where primary and secondary students can learn about rocks. The games and activities give students hands-on experience as they learn about the diverse geological features of Hong Kong and increase their awareness of the importance of geo-conservation.
