Newfoundland Travel - Geo Centre

Some of the oldest rocks in the world can be found in Newfoundland, Canada's most eastern province. For this reason, and because of its rugged terrain, Newfoundland is affectionately referred to as "The Rock." Why not plan to visit the Johnson Geo Centre during your Newfoundland travel experience? Here, in this architecturally unique building, you can see amazing geological structures, some of which contain rocks which are more than 500 million years old! #geocentre #geology #rocks #minerals #therock #newfoundland #johnsongeocentre

The Johnson Geo Centre is an architecturally unique building which serves as a geological interpretation centre for Newfoundland and Labrador..

This eye-catching building is actually built amongst the ancient rocks of Signal Hill. Amazingly, the rock wall contains rocks which are 150 million years older than the first land animals! Stand with pride and capture memories to last a lifetime as you stand alongside these magnificent rock walls. #rockwall #signalhill #rock
