Staff and students of the Cooperative Research Centre for Landscape Environments and Mineral Exploration have been researching and studying at the Fowlers Gap Arid Zone Research Station since 2003. Fowlers Gap is an ideal location for research, teaching and learning. It is located in northwest New South Wales 110 km north of Broken Hill, adjacent to the highly mineral-prospective Curnamona Block. It encompasses the landscapes and environmental problems associated with the Australian semi-arid and arid zones. It is also a comfortable location to work, rest and play!

The Fowlers Gap website contains lots of information on all of the other research that occurs there, plus checklists of plants and animals that occur on the Station. This site also contains examples of regolith-landform mapping projects aimed at 2nd- and 3rd-year Tertiary students.
