School Excursions

Many schools visit Platform 1 as an excursion to expand on their classroom learning. Other schools visit Platform 1 as a fun end of term or end of year activity to reward the children for their hard work.

Your class may be learning about the olden days, railways, transport, farms/farm animals and so a visit can consolidate your unit of work.
We can tailor your visit to follow your theme and at the same time the children will have fun.

Your visit would include:

Train ride through the farm yard and out into the open paddock.

  • Play on the railway displays.
  • Meet and feed the farm animals.
  • Play the outdoor farm games.

Additional information:

  • School visits available every day by appointment.
  • Minimum group size is 15 persons.
  • Minimum 2 hours required in order to maximise visit.

We have a large shaded picnic area for the warmer days and a shelter shed for the cooler days.

Classroom worksheet for children to complete after their visit.
OH & S sheet sent to school before visit to help prepare your visit.


$6.00 per child and $9.00 per adult (Teachers no charge).

For schools wishing to participate in the train ride, hands-on railway displays and outdoor games plus include the Paddock to Plate Programme, the cost would be $15 per child and $18 per adult.
See our Paddock to Plate programme for a full day educational hands-on experience.
