Sydney and surrounds school excursions

Hands-on learning opportunities are abundant in Sydney’s pristine natural environment, with a rich history to explore. Lane Cove, Ku-ring-gai Chase, Royal and Blue Mountains national parks are within easy reach. NSW National Parks education rangers help you structure engaging, syllabus-aligned excursions.

Students can investigate sites of Aboriginal cultural significance, ecosystems in Australia’s oldest national park or conduct a mock convict trial. First Contacts at Kurnell, Kamay Botany Bay National Park, is a must-do excursion.
