The Australian Curriculum: Geography identifies place as one of the pivotal concepts. How place is understood by teachers and how places are constructed and represented by teachers (Lambert & Morgan, 2010, 83) is of fundamental importance. For some teachers, in the consultation phase of the curriculum process, place was simply envisaged as location (personal observation). For others, the aim of school Geography is to make learners 'more effective perceivers, users, appreciators, evaluators and developers of place' (Catling, 1987, 19). A fascination with place has encouraged many of us to become immersed in Geography in school, university (Creswell, 2008, 132) and long teaching careers.
