Education

Apart from planning and running cultural tours world-wide, Time Travel Australia also provides education services in the areas of archaeology, history and heritage. In fact, one of our main aims is to make archaeology and history accessible and exciting for all, not just a discipline that requires university study.

Through our subsidiary, Archaeology Australia, we teach a range of courses designed for a range of students – from primary school through to mature age, as well as providing technical advice to professional groups covering heritage management and issues related to compliance with relevant legislation.

Our team is experienced in the design and delivery of courses, workshops and seminars. We have run courses and workshops for universities, primary schools, secondary schools and special interest groups such as the University of the Third Age and Shire Councils.

We have access to a range of tutors from disciplines associated with archaeology and history such as anthropology (both cultural and physical), Aboriginal studies, geology, geography, geomorphology, environmental science, human ecology, earth sciences, botany and biology. We also are able to undertake language workshops relevant to the countries we visit. Group tours are able to include pre-departure language training in their overall package.

We would be pleased to discuss our educational services with any organization that could use our services. While we are based in Canberra , we are regularly travel to other areas in NSW to deliver our courses. We also utilise the facilities of the ANU Coastal Campus at Kioloa, South Coast, NSW, to run field workshops.
