EDUCATION IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF TREETOPS
We aspire to educate all visitors to our park, young and young at heart, about the unique and varied Australian environment.
We offer schools the opportunity to inspire their students with a variety of exciting physical challenges as well as educational activities specifically prepared for TreeTops.
Through continuous learning and education programs we share our knowledge of and enthusiasm for the park facilities and flora and fauna to provide an enhanced experience for customers.
We employ a team of professional educators and environmental specialists. Our strategy blends educational values with learning opportunities.
Educational activities are free and purpose-designed to positively engage children with a Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) component and a Human Society and its Environment (HSIE) component.
Signage is designed with simple and sustainable materials that blend into the environment.
To encourage school participation, we offer heavy discounts (about 45 per cent) and educational materials. We provide fact sheets and quizzes adapted to class levels as well as the Teacher's Aid.
