Each workshop fulfils outcomes from the Australian school syllabus and utilises our incredible collection of historical ex-military Australian aircraft, fascinating stories, hands-on activities and interactive discussion to engage students.

  • suggested pre-visit and post-visit activities
  • explicit outcomes and links to Key Learning Areas
  • an outline of the experience components

Education – Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the site is accessible by wheelchair but not all of it. Disabled toilets are available. Please indicate on your booking form if you have any students with special needs.

Is there parking? 2016-11-24T10:23:56+00:00
There is free parking in the main parking lot for cars, buses and coaches.
What measures are in place to ensure the safety of the children whilst at the Temora Aviation Museum? 2017-03-02T16:43:00+00:00

The Temora Aviation Museum is a unique site and students will be instructed to stay behind rope barricades and not touch the aircraft. Our Safety and Risk management documentation is available for download. Teachers should read this document carefully and understand the risks and responsibilities involved.

We would appreciate if for every ten students there is one adult (not including the Temora guide). All visitors should wear appropriate clothing, sunscreen, hats, and closed-toe shoes.

Does Temora Aviation Museum have a teacher/guardian ratio policy? 2017-02-15T10:28:11+00:00
To insure safety, management and an overall quality educational experience, we ask that school groups maintain a ratio of one (1) supervising adult per ten (10) students. 30 students is the maximum number for any one guide, unless arranged beforehand with the education coordinator. Minimum number for education programs is generally 20 students. If you have fewer students, please contact us to make arrangements.
What happens on the day of the excursion? 2017-03-02T16:49:57+00:00
Tour Guides will meet you at the bus in front of the Gift Shop entrance for the commencement of the experience. Once students have alighted from the buses (or have arrived by other means) they will be provided with an introduction to the site and will need to participate in a brief activity focusing on the rules associated with their visit to the Temora Aviation Museum.
What time do school groups usually arrive if they are participating in a program in the morning? 2017-03-02T16:44:00+00:00
This is up to the organising teacher but appointments start at 9.30am.
Is it possible for school groups to have recess or lunch on the grounds of the Temora Aviation Museum before or after the tour? 2017-03-02T16:57:52+00:00
Yes, we encourage school groups to do so because having some downtime on-site helps to integrate the learning and makes for a more meaningful overall experience. Please discuss this with our Education Coordinator education@aviationmuseum.com.au.
Our Gift Shop sells hot and cold drinks, confectionary and ice cream every day. Otherwise, there are no outlets for the purchase of food or drink nearby. Please let us know if you would like a package of an education program with morning tea or a light take-away lunch for teachers and/or students. Otherwise, visitors should come prepared with food and water.

How long should we plan on staying on-site? 2017-03-02T16:51:54+00:00
If the group is staying for morning tea or lunch, this usually takes place in the picnic area. We generally recommend 30 minutes to 1 hour in addition to the time required for the tour. Please let us know at the time of booking.
Are there any worksheets used on this tour? 2017-01-25T14:47:15+00:00
