Varied Programs of Study Tours for Society Members
The Geographical Society of New South Wales supports a varied program of study tours that open up opportunities for members of the general public as well as specialist geographers to see and experience places in ways that might not otherwise be possible.
Over several decades, the Society’s study tours have visited almost every part of the globe, and exciting plans are underway to provide even more groundbreaking study tours in the future.
The Society’s study tours are currently organised by several experienced leaders.
Heather Rushton, Tours Manager at ACR, is a keen traveller. Her first extended overseas trip was in 1982 and since then she has visited over 120 countries on all seven continents. A ‘veteran’ of 20 Geographical Society Study Tours with Colin Sale, Heather understands the appeal of more unusual destinations. Although Heather’s background is English and History teaching rather than Geography, she has a great interest in the way that environment has shaped and continues to shape the way people live. Since 2014 Heather has led tours to diverse locations from the Caribbean to the Arctic Circle. Copies of her Newsletters with information about upcoming tours can be viewed here. To receive information about these tours contact Heather by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Colin Sale, the Senior Group Tours Manager at ACR Travel, has been organizing and leading group tours to all parts of the world since 1975, and most particularly, since 1988, the last 58 Study Tours programmed by the Geographical Society of New South Wales. Besides having been a Geography teacher in High Schools in Australia, England and Canada, and a Lecturer in Teachers Colleges, Sydney University, and at a college in USA, he has been travelling the world for much of his life, and has explored more than 120 countries. Colin recently announced his intention to step down from leading any more study tours, but he expects to be overseeing all future Study Tours that are operated by ACR International Travel & Tours for the people who have replaced him – Heather Rushton and Stephen Codrington.
