Educational Trips for Students and Adults

A Small World Journeys educational tour in Cairns or Sydney is about students engaging in academic endeavours, learning new skills and developing their sense of sustainable tourism. We have a number of set itineraries which have been designed to package together our most popular activities. We can tailor the educational tour for middle school students, high school students, college students or adults. We create tours for international groups as well as for those coming from within Australia.

“All our students enjoyed the activities and not only was there a variety of them but they learnt so many new things without even realising. It is a credit to you all there that you were able to put together such a camp that had to cater for such a variance in ages. A special thank you must be given to Rick [Small World Journeys guide] who, again, is so warm and genuine that the students immediately take to him. His knowledge and the way he imparts it, is amazing. You, and your whole company, are so professional, helpful and wonderful that I do not think we can look at any other operators and so will have to keep coming to Cairns!”
