Bring the learning outcomes of the Australian curriculum to life and discover a whole new way to engage your students, with NT Learning Adventures.

School excursions in the NT

The ideal classroom is the great outdoors, making the Northern Territory the education destination of choice. With vast horizons and contrasting landscapes, it’s full of inspiring and educational attractions and experiences.

Bring your students on a fascinating discovery of ancient geology, rich Aboriginal culture and important historic events. Let them experience unrivalled cultural immersion, captivate them with the natural world and give them the opportunity for digital detox.

World Heritage areas and national parks offer a myriad of outdoor activities that focus on sustainability, culture and history, whilst a close proximity to Asia provides learning opportunities focused on Asian engagement.

Hands-on and active NT Learning Adventures bring the Australian curriculum outcomes to life, addressing: earth and environmental sciences, sustainability, ecology, geology and geography, humanities and social sciences, recent Australian histories and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture, as well as Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia.

The NT provides students with stimulating and influential experiences that will ignite their imaginations, creating memories to last a lifetime.
