EDUCATIONAL COURSES FOR SCHOOLS

We offer a large range of Environmental, Aboriginal Cultural and Creative courses for students and groups ages K - 12.

‘Nearer to Nature’ educational courses are now available at the FHC.  These courses are run in partnership with DPaW and ALCOA and are directly curriculum linked.  Exclusive to the FHC is an ALCOA / Nearer to Nature day tour that combines a guided tour of ALCOA and a Nearer to Nature programme.  This tour also includes a bus subside to schools to help cover the cost of travel.  http://www.forestheritagecentre.com.au/educational-programmes  This link will also lead you to a full list of the Creative Courses on offer.

GUIDED TOURS

Experienced Guides at the FHC conduct excellent guided tours.  We cater for small private groups through to large tour buses.  Explore the interpretive centre and the walk trails, learning about wildflowers, animals and resources of the forest.  A tree-top viewing platform allows visitors to enjoy the bush at canopy height and a handmade timber cutter’s hut and campfire area can be reached from one of the bush trails. Tours of the nearby timber mill can also be arranged.  http://www.forestheritagecentre.com.au/guided-tours
