Inspiring Older Learners
Our guided tour programs for years 7 - 12 are all designed to meet the ACARA requirements and to inspire and engage your students. Learning is built around exploring, problem solving, questioning and investigating to make the experience interactive, hands-on and above all fun.
We are now open exclusively to schools on Tuesday and Wednesday during term time. This brings a range of benefits including more time to explore and the option to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy whilst taking in our marine life. Come and see us whilst we are closed to the general public - visit our general guided tours page for all the details and to compare days.
