On this student excursion in Queensland’s far north, you discover how “sustainability” takes many forms. Hands-on activities on this trip include native tree planting, assembling hygiene packs for the homeless, monitoring coral bleaching at the Great Barrier Reef and making crafts with the elderly–all projects that help people and the planet.

You also have fun discovering the natural beauty of two UNESCO World Heritage areas–The Wet Tropics and The Great Barrier Reef–and why local people are making such an effort to protect them. In the Wet Tropics you encounter edible and medicinal plants with an Aboriginal guide, and learn some traditions of the local Yirrganydji Indigenous people and at the Great Barrier Reef you swim among a rainbow of fish and corals.
