Curriculum-Based Educational Programmes

Are you looking for a unique and engaging excursion in a real outdoor classroom?

The Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre offers the opportunity for Pre-Primary to Year 12 students to explore a real Western Australian wetland while discovering scientific, historical, geographical and cultural concepts, skills and values at the same time.

All of our programmes are facilitated by experienced education officers. Students will be guided through a learning journey using hands-on experiences at the Lake as the basis of their learning.  All programmes are interactive, activity-based and linked with the Australian Curriculum.
