National Capital Attractions

While we are looking forward to schools visiting Canberra again when life returns to normal, we want to stay connected with you where we can. Canberra’s attractions have many online learning resources and activities, that may provide a support to schools, whether students are at home or in the classroom. These resources are based on curriculum themes of civics and citizenship, STEM, Australian history, art and culture. Links to these resources can be found on each attraction’s web page.
