5 Brisbane Homeschool Excursions
These are the Top 5 Brisbane homeschool excursions we would like to tick off this year.
Some of these, we have visited before, however they have new exhibitions we have not seen yet.
Fort Lytton is Queensland’s foremost military exhibit, with extensive historic fortifications, Queensland’s largest military museum and regular military re-enactments.
Queensland Museum is holding NASA – A Human Adventure. This exhibit starts not the 15th of March.
“Come face to face with NASA’s remarkable achievements in human space flights and space exploration – the greatest adventure that humans have ever undertaken.”
Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium
Brisbane City Council’s Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium opened in 1978. Located in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha, the Planetarium is home to the Cosmic Skydome – an 12.5-metre-diameter projection dome.
Located just north of the Tangalooma Island Resort are the Tangalooma Wrecks, a cluster of ships scuttled by the Queensland Government between 1963 and 1984 to provide safe anchorage spot for recreational boat owners on the eastern side of Moreton Bay.
Queensland Air Museum
The Queensland Air Museum is the perfect local attraction for both aviation enthusiasts and families alike! The museum is located at 7 Pathfinder Drive in Caloundra, Queensland, and is open daily (except Christmas Day) from 10am to 4pm.
The museum is not-for-profit and membership is open to anyone with an interest in aviation.
Writing About Excursions
Once we have done our excursion, we follow up with discussion at home. Ryan writes up a little bit about the excursion, including his own personal opinion on the event.
Sometimes we will print out relevant games, puzzles or quiz sheets as well.
I find this a really beneficial part of the whole homeschool excursion process and gives up something to provide in our yearly reports.
