The article focuses on the Australian Geography Teachers' Association and its functions. It mainly works for the teaching, learning and awareness of geography as a subject in the Australian schools. It also conducts seminars, workshops for new teachers, research, planning curricula, publishing textbooks and writing syllabus. The curricula of geography in Australian schools vary extensively. The only common factor in the curriculum is the hazard and disaster education integrated with the study of the society and environment.
