Day Excursions, Overnight Trips & School Camps in the Blue Mountains NSW Australia.

School Excursions - Megalong Bush Farm  is an ideal school group venue handy to  Sydney and the regional schools of  NSW and throughout Australia.


 Educational packages are available for all ages and stages:

  • School Study Camps
  • Day Trip Excursions


Megalong has the bush, the pioneer hut, complete with  early gold panning, to the squatters, “troopers”, and other items of the era. These exemplify the quintessential history class.


Students on day trips, or those camping / staying here for longer excursions become immersed in the difficulties pioneers had from 1797 through the gold rush era to the late 19th century. There was no electricity, no reticulated water, no convenient corner shop. There were bushrangers, droughts, famines and lots of hard work.
