Macquarie Educational Tours

Led by Greg and Heidi Turton, the staff at Macquarie Educational Tours have been organising school excursions for 18 years.

At Macquarie Educational Tours, we believe that school excursions should:

  • Be thoroughly organised by experienced Tour Planners who understand the unique needs of school group travel.
  • Be curriculum-based, building on concepts taught in the classroom and targeting learning outcomes.
  • Be both fun and educational, allowing students to discover new things through hands-on activities.
  • Be conducted by friendly and professional driver-guides who enjoy working with school groups and enhance the experience.
  • Be easy to organise and stress-free to implement, ensuring a rewarding experience for both teachers and students.
  • Give students the opportunity to get outside their comfort zone and develop independence, life skills and social skills.
  • Include appropriate group accommodation and meals, safe and comfortable coaches, and the safety net of 24 hour access to us for the duration of your excursion.

We encourage you to take your students to our nation’s capital—it’s worth the effort and we’re here to help you. If you’ve never booked with us before, you’ll be delighted with how easy it is!

Special thanks to Macquarie Ed. Tours for meeting all our needs on the Canberra trip to an excellent standard. Our itinerary was accurate and met all our requests. The drivers were very friendly, helpful and willing to meet our every need. Office staff are always polite and efficient. It is a pleasure to work with you all.

This was my first experience organising  camp to Canberra and the whole process was made so much smoother and less stressful by letting Macquarie handle the bookings and itinerary.
