South Channel Fort Adventure

A mysterious island – complete with rare wildlife and a secret underground military base to boot! All of this plus more is available for exploration on one of our guided tours. South Channel Fort has remained in a time capsule since the late 1800’s offering a glimpse into Port Phillip Bay’s history and heritage.

We have access to the entire island, including access to the underground network of tunnels.

We will also stop at Pope’s Eye and Chinaman’s Hat along the way – giving the students the chance to see the Australasian Gannets and Australian Fur Seals up close and personal while learning the unique history linked to the construction of South Channel Fort.

Cost: $45 per student (for every 10 students, 1 teacher is Free of charge). Cost is inclusive of two tour guides for both the boat and the island, full access to underground network, and morning / afternoon tea. Cost includes GST.

Duration: 15 minute registration followed by a 3 hour tour (3.25 hours total – one hour of which is spent on the island)

Australia’s southern coastline has one of the highest levels of endemism in the world, with over 90% of our marine life found nowhere else in the world. Join us as we take walk along a local beach and bring to life this diversity, with both artefacts that we find – as well as some additional items that we bring along.

Cost: $8 per student. Cost includes GST

We can increase the time, and also the location of this activity (usually delivered in Queenscliff) to suit your needs. If delivered elsewhere, an additional fee may apply depending on travel times.

We can also deliver this in conjuction with a coastal revegetation / rehabilitation program, where we work with local land managers to restore sections of coastline that have been degraded. This can involve weeding and / or planting of seedlings – preferably both!
