The Bunyaville Environmental Education Centre (BEEC) is situated in the dry forest of Bunyaville Conservation Park, off Old Northern Road, Everton Hills, 15 km north-west of the Brisbane GPO.
Bunyaville Environmental Education Centre delivers Learning Beyond the Classroom in partnership with schools. BEEC's programs are in and around the centre, in the forest and catchments, including your local catchment as linked from your school.
Sustainability issues are supported at the whole school level and in teacher's classrooms. Bunyaville provides expertise with 'the how' of teaching and learning beyond the classroom in real life contexts. Additionally the centre supports teachers with a whole school approach to sustainability through the Queensland Environmental Sustainable Schools Initiative with the Earth Smart Science Program.
Bunyaville EEC offers curriculum-based programs aligned to the Australian Curriculum and Curriculum into the Classroom and cover a wide range of knowledge and understandings that relate to the Key Learning Areas teaching K-tertiary level.
School programs are designed in partnership with the classroom teacher's current curriculum focus. Programs vary from performance based story thread programs to investigative studies for science or field work data gathering in real life contexts, including opportunity for revegetation of habitats and supporting individual's personal and social wellbeing as healthy, active and happy citizens.
An example of some of our early years programs are our Endangered Species program, The Bunyaville Easter Bilby Adventure, Going Bush, Camp Out.
