Excursions & Activities

With Arcadia, you learn beyond the classroom; while listening to the music of street performers, you try to identify the unfamiliar aroma of local cooking wafting from the street vendors, and wonder about the ancient customs you see being played out before you in a community that’s embraced you as a friend. You don’t just visit a landmark or tour the city; you engage with the culture of the place, its people, its environment and its traditions, and we’ll be there to facilitate that integration. What will you learn about other ways of life? About the importance of understanding difference in today’s globalized society? About yourself?

Our staff will help you look beneath the surface of everyday life and begin to understand what it means to be Australian. While we intentionally emphasize opportunities to engage with the culture through your course options, there’s also a world of learning beyond the classroom. We’ll open the doors, but it’s up to you to grasp the opportunity and enjoy a life-changing experience.

All Arcadia excursions are designed to be fun, interactive learning opportunities where you can visit places of exceptional interest in the country and enjoy experiences that help to illuminate your studies. You could also earn a Co-curricular Learning Certificate (CLC)
