Join Us For Extraordinary Educational Excursions

An excursion with Small World Journeys combines fun and adventure with key educational outcomes. With our outdoor education programs, students are able to take the what they’ve learnt in the classroom and apply it to real world.

Geography, Biology, Earth & Environmental Science, Marine Science and Aboriginal Studies

With two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in our backyard, a vibrant indigenous community, and incredible endemic wildlife and biodiversity, we have the perfect places for students to further their studies in Geography, Biology, Earth and Environmental Science, Marine Science and Aboriginal Studies. 

For example, with our biologists and waterproof data collection tiles, they can observe the effects of climate change on a vulnerable ecosystem like The Great Barrier Reef. Or students can learn from an Aboriginal elder how to hand craft an instrument that plays a large role in indigenouse ceremonies.  Further still, students hear of the Daintree blockade, stay in this same rainforest and participate in a real-life environmental debate that stirred national controversy and is still relevant today.

Teamwork and Leadership

Essential for every student is to learn leadership skills, and perhaps more importantly, how to support a leader.  With our outdoor education excursions, you have the opportunity to incorporate team-building exercises and initiative games into your programming.

All-Inclusive Trips

Our multi-day educational programs include:

  • Accommodation
  • Meals
  • Expert local guides and educators
  • Ground transfers once you arrive
  • Field guides
  • Risk assessment on request
  • With every 10 paying participants, one leader or teacher travels FREE.

By taking a student tour in Australia with us, you are also helping the community and environment!  Small World Journeys donates at least 5% of its net profits to Rainforest Rescue, The Fitzroy Island Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, and Harald’s House for Homeless and disadvantaged youth in Cairns.
