Country NSW school excursions

Help your students understand and connect with nature through structured, immersive learning experiences in Country NSW. Speak with an NPWS guide to plan and book hands-on lessons that engage students and align with the NSW syllabus.

Excursions include investigating historic trails in the Blue Mountains or studying Country NSW’s unique landscapes for protected wildlife. Expert Aboriginal rangers share knowledge of Country with students to help them interpret the land and experience Aboriginal culture.

This Stage 2 (years 3-4) History excursion immerses students in the History of the Mount York area. We examine the remains of the early Cox’s Road, walk in the foot-steps of explorers and First Nations people and consider how significant individuals, groups and events contributed to changes over time.
