Secondary programs

Observatory Hill EEC provides a range of curriculum linked outdoor educational programs and specialises in urban geography fieldwork and history site studies, as well as Design and Technology programs with a built environment focus. All programs can be tailored to meet particular student needs. The programs include teachers notes, student work sheets, pre and post web based support materials and risk assessment advice, as well as information about meeting dates, times, locations and costs.

Programs are relatively inexpensive and may vary depending on the excursion being undertaken. Ring the centre to find out more about how we can cater for larger groups.

Typical public school prices are listed for each program below. Non DoE schools may also be catered for. Please contact the Centre to enquire about exact program availability and pricing details.

Fees and charges

All programs will be charged on a per student basis to support school fee collection, ensure fairness across multiple classes and better align the Centre with other Environmental Education Centre pricing structures. Find out more about our fee structure.
