Day Excursions, Overnight Trips & School Camps on the South Coast NSW Australia.
The Original Gold Rush Colony at Mogo on the NSW South Coast is the perfect destination for your school excursion day trip or overnight school camps.
Students will enjoy the living history of the Australian 1850s Gold Rush days and participate in an array of fun and educational activities of your choice.
Many Schools have used the Gold Rush Colony's close proximity to Canberra to have the extended school camp to include not only the HSIE Gold and Australiana on the South Coast, but then journey up to the nations Capital to do the Government module.
The Colony is an ideal school groups venue handy to Canberra, Sydney and the regional schools of the South East Coast of NSW Australia. There are a wide range of additional activities for school groups in the near by Batemans Bay region, Eurobodalla area and on route from your school's location.
Educational packages are available for all ages and stages:
COGS related Integrated Learning Packages are offered, with particular attention to the year 5-6 curriculum on Gold, Australiana, Environment and Aboriginal Culture, integrating many sections of the HSIE primary subjects.
You can also tap into a wide range of Australian educational and history activities that can complement the basic school curriculum across all years in particular for HSIE (Human Society In Its Environment).
The experienced guides and educational facilitators of the Gold Rush Colony understand student needs, explain to students what they have to do, why they are doing and experiencing it, and provide what you need to fulfill the HSIE Syllabus Outcome.
School groups staying overnight or for longer camps have a great location to further meet their Social and Behavioral Challenges and have the use of excellent purpose-built Group Accommodation.
