School excursion programs
Our School Programs are outcomes-driven, hands-on and engaging. They’re tailored for children from Kindergarten right through to Year 12 with half a million students visiting Sydney Olympic Park each year. We also provide Professional Development activities for teachers. To see what students can experience take a look at our online virtual tours.
For delegations looking for ‘behind the scenes’ information on the running of Sydney Olympic Park, we offer Technical Insight Tours which, naturally, are structured to your group’s specific needs.
Sustainable management of 430 hectares of parklands give us fertile areas for scientific research, the findings of which are shared through our Wetlands Education and Training Workshops that are held throughout the year.
