"Whiteman Wallaby" Environmental Education Programs


Open your mind to the many wonders nature has to offer.

Whiteman Park’s Environmental Education Programs offer students a unique opportunity to learn about the natural environment, conservation, groundwater, various ecosystems and much more through creative, interactive and engaging activities. Each program has been designed specifically for the intended age group, and focuses on different aspects of the environment.

The Environmental Education Programs are delivered amongst Whiteman Park's natural bushland by knowledgeable presenters and aim to provide students with a true environmental experience which would not be possible in a normal classroom setting.
