What is a Study Tour?
Study Tours are unique educational experiences focused on study and cultural immersion ranging from a few days to a few weeks while exploring everything that beautiful tropical Cairns has to offer.
Tours can be customised to meet diverse group needs. Programs can include a variety of interactive College or local school-based activities, and a wide variety of educational excursions to improve students English and experience ‘the Australian way of life’
For groups more academically focused, opportunities can be provided to visit local businesses and find out the ‘back story of how the business’ is run, this is popular with the tourism, hospitality and agricultural sectors.
Why choose Cairns for a Study Tour?
Easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage Rainforest
Many groups choose to take excursions outside of the city, and we can easily arrange for your students to explore the reef, take a trip on the historic Kuranda train or experience the local beaches and rainforest. The Cairns region has a wide variety of amazing attractions for groups to enjoy
