Top 4 Sydney Locations To Plan Into Your School Field Trip

bus schoolSydney and the surrounding region offer a huge variety of cross curriculum itineraries that can be tailored to suit primary or secondary school kids from the state, from across Australia, or even from elsewhere in the world.

All are suited to groups and geared up to keep your party occupied, fascinated and having fun while they learn. The must-not-miss venues include:

The Harbour

Of course your party will need photos taken in the shade of the famous bridge. Of course they want their own take on the Opera House €“ and why not factor a tour of this iconic and extraordinary building? But they will also demand trips on the many ferries that criss-cross this stunning working harbour. Finish up€“ if you have the weekend – with fireworks over the Harbour on a Saturday evening to sign off in style!

The Aquarium

For a combination of education and fun you can’t beat animals and Sydney is spoilt for choice. You really ought to see the Taronga Zoo, perched on the hills above the Harbour, but there’s also the fabulous, world-leading Aquarium, and spectacular yet scholarly institution. Sea Life offers a wide range of curriculum-based study resources to enhance school excursions for students of all levels. There is even an underwater classroom! Special classes are led by the Aquarium’s experts.

National Maritime Museum

This Australian institution at Darling Harbour will entrance your students as well as get them going on history. Exhibits range from ancient times, showing the continent’s original inhabitants trapping fish and trading with Asia, through the arrival of the First Fleet of convict ships,the loss of the country’s first submarine during World War 1, to the hazards suffered by Vietnamese ‘boat-people’ refugees seeking asylum.

On a lighter note there are several real ships to explore, notably Australia II, which won the America’s Cup, and a delightful little pearl-fishing lugger from the far-ff Western Australia town of Broome.

Luna Park

Treat this spectacular amusement park as a ‘reward’ for your students if they have been well-behaved on the trip. Luna Park is Sydney’s original park, thoroughly renovated and reopened in 2004 with the intention of retaining as much as possible of the original 1930s feel of the original but adding a new 2,000-seat Big Top auditorium and new restaurants. All the classics are there -dodgems, a Ferris wheel and some tummy-turning adventure rides, plus the Hair Raiser, which drops occupants through 50 metres at the speed of gravity.. Put it down as a cultural experience “ the students will love you for it!
