Plan Your School Excursion

Before Your Visit


When booking your excursion, have a couple of dates and times in mind. We will do our best to accommodate your first choice of day and time, but in case we are already booked up on your desired day it's good to have an alternative.

We are open for school excursions every week day during Queensland term time and our hours are from 9am to 3pm. 

Let our reservations team know as much as you can about the students who will be attending, including numbers and details of any special needs. 


If you are using worksheets onsite, please print copies for your students prior to your visit.


When booking a guided excursion you will be advised of the recommended group size ahead of your visit and can split your group accordingly where needed. For self-guided visits, please divide your students as evenly as possible into groups of no more than 30 each in preparation for your tour. If specific capacities apply due to COVID restrictions you will also be advised of these ahead of your visit.

Students completing worksheets will need to bring along a pen, clipboard and a copy of the worksheet.


Please request your risk assessment from our reservations team at:
