Great Southern Learning Adventures

Vision

The Great Southern is a destination of choice for school camps and school excursions

Goal

The goal of the Great Southern Learning Adventures project is to promote the Great Southern as a destination for school camps and school excursions. Rich in heritage and culture, and home to an amazing diversity of outdoor education experiences, the Great Southern is an ideal destination for educational tourism.

This project is an initiative of the GSCORE-led School Camp & Excursion Marketing Alliance (SCEMA) which is a network of businesses, community groups, and government organisations that provide products and services to schools and youth groups.

Progress

Website

The Great Southern Learning Adventures website was launched in December 2018. It provides a comprehensive overview of educational programs, products and services available in the Great Southern, as well as curriculum links and resources.

Marketing Plan

In July 2019, we received $20,000 from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund to develop a Marketing Plan for the Great Southern Learning Adventures website. The funds will allow us to promote the Great Southern region to schools and youth groups. You can find out more about the funding on our news page.

Business Network

We welcome new members to join SCEMA (it’s free!) and advertise on the website.

Funding Support

We acknowledge the generous funding support of the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
