School program for VELS levels 2-6 (Years 1-10)

On this school camp, your students’ journey will begin with an exploration of the Cape Otway environment, navigating through spectacular heathland to the look-out and lighthouse cemetery. Orientate yourselves in time and space as you relive tales of shipwrecks and sailors, disaster and disease.

With the voices of the long departed still ringing in your ears continue your expedition to the Lightstation grounds where our experienced guides will take your students on an interactive tour of the precinct, visiting the historic Telegraph station with its signal tower and flagstaff, Lighthouse Keepers’ quarters, Koori cultural display, World War 2 Radar Station, coastal heathland and 1848 Lighthouse tower.

Our extensive collection of artefacts, photographs and archival materials allow your students to step back in time and experience life on this wild and isolated Lightstation.
