Field Stations

The School has a fleet of 4WD and other vehicles. Field facilities include the Crommelin Biological Field Station, 60 km north of Sydney, which provides accommodation and basic laboratory and library facilities and access to adjacent wet and dry sclerophyll forests, sandy beaches, mangrove swamps and intertidal rock platforms.

On the Great Barrier Reef, the University leases the One Tree Island Research Station (Director: Associate Prof. Maria Byrne) which in turn is administered by the Marine Studies Centre (see later). The Institute of Wildlife Research (Director: Prof. C.R.Dickman) has access to several field stations and sites in remote areas as part of its cooperative programmes.
