High School Students

Teachers: looking for educational tours for your students? You’ve come to the right place. Our educational trips in Cairns and Sydney give students opportunities to dig deep into culture, ecology, marine biology and adventure. We take care of all arrangements: airport pick ups, meals, guides, accommodation and educational activites.

Educational Tours More Than Just “Bus Trips”

Our educational tours in Queensland and New South Wales are a collection of experiences that get young people into the natural world rather than viewing it from the window of a bus. Our guides facilitate authentic hands-on educational excursions, with your science, cultural and teambuiliding goals incorporated into the trip.

Students snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef and simultaneously survey coral predators. They can spot the endangered cassowary during a stay in the Daintree Rainforest or see first hand effects of climate change on a rapidly disappearing population of highlands animals. They can learn from modern-day cowboys to milk the cows and crack whips or make a didgeridoo under the gentle tutelage of an Aboriginal elder.

Through one of our pre-set itineraries or a custom-designed educational trip, students and teachers have a choice of authentic experiences that bring them closer to understanding the natural sciences and aboriginal culture of Australia.

Show Your Students You’re Environmentally & Socially Conscious

In our time of intense concern about the environment, it only makes sense to choose an eco-friendly tour operator. We are proud to say that we are a carbon-neutral company–rare in the travel industry, but most certainly appreciated by your students. Small World Journeys pays to offset the carbon emissions that result from all of our office activities and our educational trips in Queensland and New South Wales.

Through Sustainable Travel International (STI), our emissions are calculated and offset by our financial support of Gold Standard sustainability projects around the world. We also make financial and in-kind donations to local conservation and indigenous community groups. For more information, see 10 Reasons Why We’re Eco.

Your Hard Questions Happily Answered

With leading a group of high school students to Australia comes a host of responsibilities, as well as barrage of questions. We encourage you to ask us the hard questions, and to demand the highest standards when it comes to your tour. We’re up to the task. We’ll ensure no detail is overlooked, and you can be confident your high school student group will have the best journey possible.

Interested, But Don’t Know Where to Start?

Even if you don’t see your group’s interest above, chances are we can make it happen. Our New South Wales and Queensland educational tours are hand-crafted for those who cannot find exactly what they want from the inflexible set itineraries of large tour operators.  Our guides have advanced degrees to ensure your academic goals are met.
