Here are some things that might help you with planning your visit with us. For overnight programs, there is additional information in the Overnight Programs programs section.
Earth Friendly Lunch

sandwiches wrapped in greaseproof paper or in a reusable container
fresh fruit (this comes with its own compostable packaging!)
vegetable sticks (in a paper bag that can be composted or a reusable container)
yogurt or cheese, packed in a reusable container with a reusable spoon
a drink in a reusable container, that can be washed out and used again

As most of our programs are run predominately outside, please ensure that students are advised to bring weather appropriate clothing. We may have to postpone your visit if the weather looks unfavorable. Heavy rain, strong winds, and Extreme/Catastrophic bushfire ratings make outdoor programs potentially dangerous. We will be in contact with you the day prior to discuss this.
Ensure you confirm drop off and pick up locations and times to coincide with program times. Will be unable to run additional activities to cater for groups that arrive early/leave late due to buses. Please also confirm this with your driver on the day.
During Terms 1 and 4 it is Bushfire season. In the event of Severe and Extreme Fire Danger Ratings, you may be required to have a bus available to stay on site. Please consider this when making your booking.
