Educational Tours for Senior Years 11 & 12

Curriculum-Based Trips for Senior High School Students

Our tours have been designed with your senior students’ learning objectives in mind, providing the connections between the content being taught in the classroom and the broader global context. By experiencing the environment first hand students are able to form a deep understanding of the important, fundamental ideas allowing them to focus their studies.

What to Expect From Our Educational Tours:


“Small World Journeys guides were always professional and experts in their fields. Our favourite things were indigenous hunting and snorkelling. Good value for money – many things were included in the package and students were able to experience things they wouldn’t normally. SWJ’s attention to detail made the whole trip run very smoothly and absolutely fit our criteria for an “eco-friendly” company.”

–Lisa Kendall, Teacher, St. Mary’s School, Wollongong, Australia (April ’13)

Risk Mtick markitigation.  We obsess over safety.  We ask ourselves, “How can we make  activities as safe as possible while still ensuring your students have fun?”  We evaluate hazards and if we determine an activity is too risky, we don’t do it.  Potential risks are identified in our risk assessment that we write & send to you.


Your Ctick markurriculum Integrated. We solicit your academic goals and then match you to one of our expert guides to whom your group is best suited. On our programs, concepts that were unclear in the classroom may come into focus with an outside instructor.


Satisfatick markction That Your Trip Helps The Environment & Community.
We commit 5% of our nett profits to local environmental and community groups AND we volunteer our time to help charities.   For more information, see 10 Ways We’re ”Sustainable”.



Australian National Curriculum

As we transition into the new Australian National Curriculum, we have also aligned many of our trips to reflect this.  For example, our student biology camps are wholly relevant to units such as Years 11 & 12 Biology – Biodiversity and the Interconnectedness of Life.

New South Wales Curriculum

For the NSW Geography Syllabus we have created the program “Ecosystems at Risk” which specifically caters for the coral reef or rainforest case studies. Our programs also cover content from the Biology topic “Evolution of Australian Biota”, the Earth and Environmental topic “Environments Through Time” and Aboriginal Studies- “Heritage and Identity”.

Victorian Curriculum

A trip with Small World Journeys likewise caters for Victorian students with content being covered for the VCE particularly in Biology- “Unit 2: Organisms and their Environment”, all units of Environmental Science but especially “Unit 3: Ecological Issues: Energy and Biodiversity” and “Unit 4: Ecological Sustainability” and “Unit 1: Natural Environments” in the Geography syllabus.

Queensland and Other States

All our trips are fully customisable and so if you have a particular area of study that you would like your students to focus on please be in touch to discuss your needs.

Yes, We Do Risk Assessments!

We understand that you as a teacher must ensure the safety of your students on an excursion.  We also know you must demonstrate to your principal that we have all bases covered regarding safety.  A risk assessment is done for every tour, and we evaluate risks for a full spectrum of activities: swimming, bush walking, camping, visiting national parks, etc. to less obvious risks such as riding in our vehicles, sun exposure, and the possibility of getting separated from the group.  Hazards and risks are then detailed in a comprehensive document and sent to you.

Teachers: 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. A school tour to the Daintree?  An extended trip to the Great Barrier Reef?  A sample of Far North Queensland Indigenous culture? Our educational camps and trips are hand-crafted for those who cannot find exactly what they want from the inflexible set itineraries of large tour operators.
