Why learn with GBR Biology

Why learn with GBR Biology?

Cairns is one of the greatest locations on the reef to explore and learn about the natural world, and is home to two World Heritage Sites.

At GBR Biology, we have created flexible educational programs to suit the learning outcomes of a wide range of groups, including school excursions, field trips, university research projects, preschool groups, study abroad programs, curious minds and more.

If you are looking to see the best of Far North Queensland, learn about the Great Barrier Reef and surrounding rainforest ecosystems โ€“ GBR Biology can tailor a program for you!

Great Barrier Reef Education Experience Program

In March 2021 the Queensland Government announced its Great Barrier Reef Education Experience Program. The program is designed to support students to undertake place-based learning activities on the Great Barrier Reef.

The program will provide eligible primary and secondary students in Queensland up to $150 to be used towards travel, accommodation and the expenses associated with a reef field trip.

The GBR Education Experience Program will align with the school curriculum, and resources will be developed for schools and teachers to support alignment with the themes of the GBR within the Australian Curriculum.
