Take your students on a Canberra tour that aligns with your curriculum wish list and budget with WorldStrides. Our experts have been organising itineraries that tick all the boxes for 35 years. There’s no better place than our nation’s capital for civic education, where interactive learning programs ensure politics are brought to life.
According to the National Capital Education Tourism Project, around 160,000 students visit Canberra every year. One of our best tips is to travel during off-peak periods to maximise learning opportunities and open up more options for accommodation and activities. Shorter ques and no crowds allow students to enjoy a more up-close-and-personal experience.
The best off-peak times to visit Canberra are:
When: Early February
Why: With schools settling in for Term 1, our teachers often say this is a great time to build group cohesion for the year ahead.
Why: Many schools are undertaking NAPLAN testing at this time, which means you won’t be competing with crowds.
When: June – August
Why: Many schools avoid travelling to Canberra in the chilly months, but our teachers say Canberra in winter has a cosy charm.
*Another tip for the budget conscious is to avoid periods that back onto school holidays.
School tours in Canberra are popular for good reason – students have the chance to discover cultural institutions and attractions with a highly trained and engaging presenter who understands the subject matter intimately.
Schedule your tour during off-peak times and we can add activities for free. Whether it’s a bicycle tour or an interactive educational program, will depend on your preference, travel dates and group size.
