Where is the Barambah Environmental Education Centre?

The Barambah Environmental Education Centre is situated 50 km west of Gympie in Wrattens National Park in the South Burnett region. The centre is a comfortable all-weather facility capable of accommodating up to 80 students, teachers and supporting adults.

What does the Barambah Environmental Education Centre provide?

An extensive system of walking tracks has been constructed to enable students to explore and study the local forests and provide safe access to established learning sites. The centre's grounds and native plant nursery have been designed and developed to maximise learning opportunities for all students who visit Barambah.

Facilities

The facility is ideally located for environmental education because of easy access to a diverse range of local forests that have been home to traditional Indigenous groups of the Mary River Valley and Burnett districts and have supported hardwood forest industries, native pine plantations, goldmining and beef cattle production. The diversity of forests and range of past and present use, provide unique opportunities for students to explore the natural world as well as investigate a variety of environmental issues first at hand.

Programs

Students visiting the centre range from preschool children on day visits to extended four-day excursions catering for the learning needs of upper primary and secondary class groups. A comprehensive range of programs are available that focus on past and present uses of the area informing student decision making about the future.

Vision

Our vision at the Barambah Environmental Education Centre is:

A place where people learn to care for self, others and country.
