Read more about Journey to an ancient world
The journey provides a window into the ancient past when rainforests covered the land we now call Australia. Students gain an understanding of the evolution of rainforest over geological time and the geographical processes that form and transform environments.
Students will be guided through a diverse and unique high altitude environment of snow gums and cool temperate rainforests, with spectacular vantage points giving perspective to the processes that continue to shape this environment.
Students will acquire and communicate geographical information using geographical tools for inquiry through map reading and interpretation, the use of fieldwork instruments for weather information and field observations.
