Second Nature Asia Pacific provides Primary and Secondary schools and universities with options for field studies, camps and in-class presentations for all SOSE and Humanities subjects.  We established this company as a resource for educational institutions located in, or visiting northern New South Wales and south east Queensland.  Upon request, we also provide science programs for institutions located throughout Queensland and New South Wales.

Our SOSE and humanities programs have been designed to fit in with the school curriculum from Prep/ Kindergarten to Year 12 in both Queensland and New South Wales.  In consultation with teachers, we adapt our programs to the curriculum of non-Australian schools.  For details on our non-Australian based school programs, please click here.  We also tailor geography/ geology/ other humanities programs with teachers from all Australian and non-Australian-based universities.  For information on single-day excursions (for all education levels) based on habitat types, please click on a habitat below.  For information on school/ university camps, please click here.

We provide you with a master copy of the curriculum-based work-booklet (where applicable) and all the equipment required to deliver your chosen excursion.  Depending on the circumstances, we may need to utilise/ supplement our equipment with that belonging to your school, if available.  For delivery of the program, we provide experienced guides/ facilitators and can supply all your logistics and catering as requested at a greatly discounted rate. All programs come with Risk Assessments and Parents Information Flyers (to assist the school to inform students’ families about details of the excursion and to justify costs being passed onto them).
