The Coastal Environment Centre (CEC) takes learning from a classroom setting, to an outdoors, hands on, practical experience. All our excursions meet curriculum outcomes for NSW Science and Technology and/or Geography, as well as Sustainability as a cross-curriculum priority. All excursions are run by qualified educators and we provide the equipment you’ll need.

Early Stage 1


The Coast excursion has been developed for Early Stage 1. Your kindergarten class will love this exploration of coastal life. Buddies is a slight variation on The Coast, as year 6 students attend to help their little buddies complete the tasks and activities set for the day.

Stage 1


Three very different excursions have been developed by the CEC for Stage 1. They are Different Coastal Environments, It’s all about Waterworks and Habitats. Bring your year 1 and 2 classes to our Centre, they will love the experience of learning while completing activities outside the classroom setting. 

Stage 2


The CEC has developed three excursions for stage 2. They are Changing Landscapes Beneath our Feet, Bilarong Catchment Geography Field trip and Living Things/ Fur Feather or Leaves. All three excursions provide a fun and interesting way to translate your classroom theory into a practical experience. 

Stage 3


The CEC has developed two excursions for stage 3. They are Sensitive Environments – Warriewood Wetlands and Coast and Headlands. Your year 5 and 6 classes will love both of these investigative excursions and how they link back to what you’ve been working on in class.
