School Excursions

Due to COVID-19, we are not currently taking any school excursion bookings. 

The Eco House & Garden is closed indefinitely. 

Provide your students with an exciting learning opportunity at Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre and the Eco House and Garden.

During a tour of Kimbriki’s waste and recycling facilities, students will see huge volumes of waste, recyclables and recycled materials as well as large trucks, loaders, and other machinery - all from the safety of your bus (or parent’s cars for small groups). In addition, students will participate in an ecology workshop designed to support primary, secondary school and tertiary curriculum outcomes.

School visits are offered to Primary and Senior School levels (K-Year 12). A minimum of 15 students are required to host an excursion. Excursion are free of charge to schools within the Northern Beaches Council and Mosman Council areas. For schools outside these council areas, a $10 fee per student applies (with a total minimum charge of $150 incl gst). 

Schools are responsible for arranging bus transport to and from Kimbriki and for the duration of the site tour/s.

Learning in the Eco House and Garden is experiential and covers the following topics:

  • Where my breakfast came from
  • Amazing soils
  • The importance of recycling food waste at home and at school
  • All about compost
  • The role of worms
  • You are what you eat… and more!

Workshops are conducted by Kimbriki’s passionate Senior Eco Gardener and teacher - Peter Rutherford.

School visits are now offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from approximately 10am. Please allow 2.5 hours (including morning tea break) at Kimbriki. Single class groups of up to 35 or double class groups of up to 70 students can be accommodated at any one time.

A visit to Kimbriki is a great way to inspire students, staff and parents to develop initiatives to fulfill the Schools Environmental Management Plan (SEMP).  Parents and support staff are welcome to join the students on the school visit or may like to book for one of Kimbriki’s workshops for adults.
