Education Services

Our Education Program aims to create fans of our parks and reserves through visiting or caring for them.

We encourage schools and community groups to become involved and active in supporting a culture of ongoing and sustainable commitment to our parks, reserves and the conservation values inherent within them. We provide Educational Group Exemptions from National Park entry fees for groups visiting for educational purposes.

We aim to provide equity within our Education Program through a tiered approach so that education material is available to everyone, but also moves schools towards sustainability and ongoing involvement with our parks and reserves.
