EDUCATORS & STUDENTS

CRATER provides an excellent venue for scientific and environmental education opportunities for school groups and students.

We provide opportunities for practical hands-on learning, along with the opportunity to get close to nature and away from devices. Students will get the chance to learn while set in an environment surrounded by native Australian flora and fauna.

Topics of study can include (but are not limited to):

  • Ecology
  • Geology
  • Biology
  • Zoology
  • Agricultural science
  • Conservation
  • Animal husbandry
  • Regenerative farming and grazing
