Murray-Riverina school excursions

Packed with unique, syllabus-aligned education experiences, this region is home to 8 national parks and rare desert environments. Plan an immersive excursion with a NSW National Parks ranger to help students build connections with Country and the traditional custodians.

Learning in World Heritage-listed Mungo National Park will be an experience students hold on to for a lifetime. Aboriginal rangers can share personal stories of connection to places throughout these parks to support students’ understanding of important cultural traditions.
