The Glasshouse Mountains hold stories of family and floods passed on by the Kabi Kabi people. The beaches rival those of the Gold Coast and offer beautiful swimming spots beside cruisy beach villages. It is an agricultural hub for tropical fruits like pineapples and avocadoes, and a happening tourist district thanks to attractions like Australia Zoo and Underwater World. From day tours to support specific units of the curriculum to one-of-a-kind experiences, Second Nature offers a variety of tour options for school and university groups.
Our Domestic Tours for school and university groups are all-inclusive, affordable and fully customised. The flexible design of our Domestic Tours means itineraries can be adapted to fulfil curriculum requirements for any of the following subjects: Geography, Biology, Earth & Environmental Science, Marine Science, Investigating Science, Agricultural Science and Tourism. Educational institutions can experience one of our pre-existing itineraries or work with us to design an itinerary that perfectly suits their needs.
