The Northern Territory is a region teeming with extraordinary landscapes, rich Aboriginal culture, and diverse wildlife. It offers a unique experience for students, providing remarkable opportunities to explore the untamed beauty of the Outback and gain a deeper understanding of the country’s diverse heritage. A place of wonder and whimsy, the Northern Territory offers an array of inspiring and educational experiences for students to engage in, many of which are built around strong links with the Australian Curriculum including Humanities and Social Science, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture, Science and Sustainability.
Tourism NT has announced its Save & Learn program offering school groups up to $3,000 in funding towards their tour price if travelling before 31 December 2023. This is an incredible opportunity for schools wishing to experience the vibrancy of the NT and our WorldStrides team will help you every step of the way.
