Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER)

The Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) Program provides a travel subsidy for Years 4–12 students across Australia to visit Canberra to participate in Civics and Citizenship excursions to Canberra, with rates based on distance travelled.

The PACER Program supports onsite learning at national democratic, cultural institutions in Canberra to improve understanding of Australian democracy and to provide young people with the skills they need to succeed as active and involved citizens. All PACER approved national institutions provide programs that directly align to the Australian Curriculum.
