Centennial Parklands is the place for school excursion programs with a difference!

Our school excursion programs provide a learning experience as far removed from the everyday classroom experience as possible. We offer hands-on learning and immersive opportunities to deliver outcomes that can make a positive impact on a learner for years to come.

Centennial Parklands’ diverse landscapes provide the perfect location to experience ‘hands-on nature’ and fieldwork. Our sessions are full of activities that aim to cater to all learning styles, providing excellent learning and value for both the students and teachers.

Centennial Parklands’ Education team is a group of professional, innovative and experienced educators who deliver play-based learning, specific to the Parklands environment.

Our education programs are curriculum-based, interactive and provide experiential learning experiences. Each session includes:

  • access to the learning habitats
  • access to The WILD PLAY Discovery Centre
  • support material including a session outline, worksheets (where appropriate) and teaching resources
  • equipment and field teaching resources
  • safety information including risk assessments

Excursion Program

Our excursion programs provides innovative and exciting school sessions from Early Years and Foundation stages through to Year 12, with experiential learning in Centennial Parklands (featuring the Botany Wetlands, Lachlan Swamp, bush landscapes, a fresh aquifer and Banksia scrubland).
