Welcome to Australia’s Coastal Paradise!

Spend two weeks in Brisbane will show you everything you could want in an Educational Vacation: Learning, Entertainment, Wildlife, and Marine Wonder!

Arrive in beautiful Brisbane and immediately jump into the action on Day 1 as the first stop of the Brisbane Conservation Study Tour is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and then Springbrook National Park.

This wondrous park will be your home for the next 5 days, featuring walks in the rainforest and presentations from park staff on the threatened Koala species and safety!

Day 2 is host to hands-on conservation activities with the staff, along with the chance to set up your own remote camera in the park to take a sneak peek at the rare wildlife!

Evenings at Springbrook National Park are a chance to either explore on your own or participate in some spotlight walking to find nocturnal animals like the Brush-tailed possums, sugar gliders, and spot the glowing mushrooms!

Day 3 is highlighted by Bird Watching hikes while Day 4 is highlighted by water quality monitoring activities and group discussions!

The fifth day of the Brisbane Conservation Study Tour plays host to more bird watching and a trip to Germaine Greer’s astounding home-grown, 65-hectare rain forest being created from bare ground! A once in a lifetime treat!

Your final day at Springbrook National Park is a chance to really focus on protecting the beautiful rainforest and celebrate your stay around a campfire with marshmallows!

Day 7 of Brisbane Conservation Study Tour transitions to the Woodstock Cattle Property for two days of exploration and learning at one of the most environmentally friendly Cattle Farms on Earth, a hallmark of the CVA Biodiversity Rehabilitation Plan!

Day 9 of the Brisbane Conservation Study Tour takes you deep into the heart of beautiful Brisbane City. Tour the University of Queensland Campus and take a Ferry Ride through the city!

The next day, enjoy learning about the Aboriginals, the oldest living culture in the world! Experience their cuisine for lunch at the Coolnwynpin Creek before an afternoon of taking on the challenge of Marine Pollution!

Day 11 of the Brisbane Conservation Study Tour includes an entry ticket to one of the two theme parks along the Gold Coast! Enjoy either Dreamworld (Australia’s largest theme park with over 40 rides and the Tiger Conservation Park) or dive into the Warner Brothers Movie World! It all depends on what YOU want!

The next day in Brisbane City, it’s an early morning that is worth setting the alarm for! The Brisbane Conservation Study Tour takes you out to sea on a Whale Watching Cruise before your final group session of presentations and the certificate ceremony that evening.

Delight in shopping and free time in the city on departure day before transporting to the Brisbane International Airport.

Remember, no previous knowledge is necessary to enjoy this trip. Just bring a willingness to learn and an adventurous spirit. Oh, and your camera too!
