Tertiary Students

Our Education Programs are currently on hold until further notice.
If you would like to be notified once we are ready to re-commence bookings, please email us.

Wollongong Botanic Garden can provide a range of learning opportunities for tertiary and adult students studying at TAFE, university or other registered training organisations.

Activities can be organised for groups or individuals.

We can help Education students build their teaching skills about environmental sustainability, plants, geography, science and the humanities.

For those studying the environment or horticulture, we’re happy to discuss how we can tailor a learning or research opportunity to suit your needs.

We can also cater to visiting international students who want a rewarding learning experience while they’re in Australia.

Booking information

If your request is accepted, we'll send you a booking confirmation letter, risk assessment, garden map and instructions for your visit (including wet weather plan).

Excursion cost is $13 (incl. GST) per student per day, and includes two activities. Carers and teachers are free.

In line with new Education Department policy, we are requesting the pre-payment of your attendance by credit card. This will be emailed to you as soon as we have confirmed your education date and you have confirmed your numbers. (Please note we cannot amend numbers after an invoice has been generated).

If payment before attendance is not possible you will be required to send us a PO number so we can send the invoice to EDConnect, to be paid prior to attendance.

Most activities can still go ahead in light rain. In this case, please make sure everyone in your group wears appropriate wet weather clothes and shoes.

Please call us on the excursion day to confirm whether the program can continue or if your excursion needs to be rescheduled.
