SPOTLIGHT ON: Holloways Beach Environmental Education Centre

Queensland, Australia, is luckier than most to have 26 environmental and outdoor education centres spread throughout the state. 

The most northerly of these is Holloways Beach in Far North Queensland near Cairns. Off shore lies the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

The centre is a camp for all of the schools in the Cairns area as well as a day excursion destination.

Boating skills, science studies. leadership and sustainability activities make the centre a popular draw card for students in the region. Along with a diverse natural area to explore the camp has a variety of aquarium specimens including 'Snappy Tom' the baby crocodile and a touch tank.

Like all Environmental Centres around Australia, Holloways Beach are invited to receive AUSMEPA's free poster packs as either pre or post visit resources for visiting schools.
