Educational Programs at the Caves

 

There are a range of wonderful educational programs available the ‘Caveworks Eco-Centre’. The programs are designed to both educate and excite students about our fascinating natural attractions, while complementing learning areas within the Science and the Society and Environment curriculum. The presentation is adaptable to students of all year levels. Programs are offered at Lake, Mammoth and Jewel Caves and the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse; each one consisting of an interactive presentation followed by a themed tour of one of the sites as follows:

  • The Climate Change and Geology Tour at Lake Cave - Students will participate in an interactive presentation discussing the role climate change has played in the formation of our limestone caves and the effect it may have in the future.
