With the introduction of Australian history into the National Curriculum, Brickendon is an ideal location to provide students with a range of activities.

Our schools program ranges from pre-kinder through to early high school and activities include:

  • a real hands on experience of early colonial and convict history
  • the changes from early colonial farming through to the present day with mechanisation
  • exploring buildings of the Farm Village that are were convict built and still in use today
  • discovering the facts about transportation, convicts and their families
  • sketching and writing about their “life as a convict”
  • baking damper or going on the Convict Farm Walk
  • getting out on the farm and meeting our friendly animals
  • playing old time games
  • enjoying our “Day in the Life of a Farmer” activity course.

We are happy to design your excursion to suit your students needs and look forward to helping bring “history to life”.
