Cultural Education

If you had the opportunity to have Australia’s best cultural education program supplier come to your school to deliver an exciting, engaging cultural education program – you have come to the right place!
We are very proud to have developed and refined our cultural education programs over many years to become the industry innovator and benchmark. What we offer is a completely unique, highly entertaining experience your students will never forget. All this supported by hundreds of extremely satisfied schools and our money-back guarantee!

With the roll-out of the Australian Curriculum, and as our population becomes increasingly multi-cultural, there is a corresponding need for all Australian students to have exposure to relevant, meaningful and interesting cultural education.
Our cultural education programs focus on Australia’s indigenous culture and that of our neighbouring cultures (those throughout Oceania and South East Asia). Programs for other cultural groups have and can be developed upon request.
All our programs aim to provide students with information which facilitates an understanding and nurtures an appreciation of selected cultures. There has always been a vacancy in the provision of such services in Australia. Second Nature Education has closed this gap by offering education institutions, museums, art galleries and special-interest groups a diverse range of amazing cultural education experiences. Our fantastic facilitators have a combination of decades of experience in cultural education throughout many countries across six continents. We provide four distinct cultural education services.
