Geopark Visitor Centre

          To gain a better understanding of the geological history of Hong Kong, the public may now visit the newly opened Geopark Visitor Centre in the Lions Nature Education Centre in Tsiu Hang, Sai Kung. The 160-square-metre visitor centre set up by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) aims to give the public an overview of the geological environment in Hong Kong, promote greater interest in earth sciences and raise the awareness of the need to preserve our geological heritage. The Centre was opened in December 2009. After further stage of improvement, the visitor centre re-opened on 3 September 2010. (Please click here for more details.)
