Discover more ways to learn while enjoying nature

The new edu­ca­tion­al part­ner­ship recog­nis­es some of the state’s most sig­nif­i­cant envi­ron­men­tal sites as learn­ing des­ti­na­tions, includ­ing all our nation­al parks!

Run by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ade­laide, South Aus­tralian schools sign up to the pro­gram and encour­age their stu­dents (between the ages of 5 to 18 years old) to dis­cov­er what our state has to see and offer, while dis­cov­er­ing future study and employ­ment pathways. 

Either through school pro­grams or with their fam­i­lies, par­tic­i­pa­tion in the activ­i­ties are record­ed in a pass­port, which once com­plet­ed, allows par­tic­i­pants to receive a cer­tifi­cate at a cer­e­mo­ny host­ed by the university. 

This new part­ner­ship adds more envi­ron­men­tal sites, and events such as Park of the Month, giv­ing chil­dren a larg­er scope of events and learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, allow­ing every­one to find some­thing that sparks their inter­ests. All our nation­al parks are now learn­ing des­ti­na­tions which means fam­i­lies can vis­it our parks and earn a stamp in your passport.

The best place to start is to reach out to your children’s school to find out if they are par­tic­i­pat­ing in this program. 

From there, you can find out more regard­ing the Children’s Uni­ver­si­ty at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Adelaide’s web­site and see their full list of learn­ing des­ti­na­tions.
