Known to Sydney’s First Nations Peoples as Wareamah, Cockatoo Island is a great place for primary and high school classes to extend their understanding of Australian history. As your students explore historical buildings and spaces with a specialist education guide, they will have opportunities to consider how the past has influenced the present.
Looking for a hands-on school excursion idea where students can gain first-hand insight into First Nations knowledge of our Country and its rich diverse food sources? Escape your classroom and head to North Head Sanctuary for our new interactive Bush Tucker Education Tour. Only available in May 2023.
