Small World Journeys
Small World Journeys offers eco-friendly customised educational tours for high school and middle school and university groups. Their multi-day educational trips in Australia celebrate the Aussie icons and the wonders of the natural world, led by expert guides.
Naturalist guides open up a world of wildlife. Indigenous elders teach about their traditions and culture or how to find medicinal plants in the Rainforest. Marine biologists teach about the wonders of the sea. Eco-lodge owners open their doors, professors lend their expertise, and educators give special talks to Small World Journeys student groups.
Educational groups are particularly well catered for; Small World Journeys offers community service projects, cultural interactions and learning opportunities that students and teachers love. Think marine biology, rainforest ecology, and indigenous culture in fun, affordable packages.
How are they eco-friendly? They pay to offset the carbon emissions from all of their trips, and support locally-owned businesses to keep income in the community. Small World Journeys also donates to environmental and community groups such as the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre and Rosie’s Friends on the Street and with help of their partner Rainforest Rescue, a five-metre square plot of rainforest is adopted in the names of each group.
