Australian Schools

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.  Teachers can tick the boxes relating to science, geography and Aboriginal culture content.

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 indigenous 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, as a teacher 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.

Teachers Love Us

We are proud to say that teachers keep bringing their student groups back to us again and again.  We like to think it’s because we make it easy for teachers and students learn in a fun way.  Teacher like our eco-friendly ethos as well.  Our trips are not school camps in Queensland, and our guides are not “drivers” – they are professionals in education and/or the natural sciences.  Detailed day by day itineraries are sent ahead, so teachers know exactly what to expect the moment they step off the plane.

“This trip was exactly what we required, a lot of learning occurred, with lots of options depending on the mood of the group. Guides had expertise in different areas and developed fantastic rapport with the students very quickly. Safety was treated as a priority and our concerns were always met. Professionalism and attention to detail was great.  There were no hidden costs, plenty of food, lots of extra surprises.  Nothing was ever too much trouble.”
–Anna Mason, Teacher, Lyneham High School Canberra, ACT (Sep-Oct 2015)
