Geo Rabble

What is GeoRabble?

GeoRabble ( is a free, informal meet-up about celebrating the everyday challenges and triumphs of working with location. Everything from the mundane to the glamorous, whatever gets your GeoRocks off. Anything to do with GeoTech, GeoDev, GeoBusiness, GeoTrends, GeoFutures, – you name it, as long as you’re passionate and want to share your challenges, triumphs, frustrations and pride in the work that you do.

GeoRabble is here to connect, inspire and really have some fun with what is the coolest tech around – and if you don’t believe that, then GeoRabble is not for you.

Typically, a GeoRabble event includes some short talks, a cash bar and (sponsored) finger food (often Pizza). GeoRabble started in Sydney in 2011, and Rabbles have since been hosted in Melbourne, Tasmania, Brisbane, Canberra, Auckland, Perth and Pretoria.
