since 2012

Having built strong educational tour foundations in Perth, Sydney and Canberra, we subsequently relocated our business headquarters to Melbourne in 2012 to further progress our educational tour products and services to cover the four major Australian cities.

We shall continue to design and organise field trips to these cities with the care and attention the overseas schools, tertiary institutions and their agents expect of us and build upon the reputable history that has sustained Sights-n-Venture Tours to the present.

Possible themes for inclusion in a Melbourne field trip:

Shrine of Remembrance

Victoria’s War Memorial and iconic landmark with a panoramic view of the city of Melbourne from the rooftop. Students are engaged on the tour of the memorial with oral histories by war veterans with many a story to tell. On certain time of the day, a memorial service is held to remember the sacrifice of Victorian men and women of the wars of the world.

Botanic Garden Tour

Located near the centre of Melbourne, the Royal Botanic Gardens is set on 38 hectares consisting of a mix of native and exotic vegetation including over 10,000 individual species. There are myriads of programs to satisfy the inquiring minds of each group of students – be it of a Botanic, Science or Aboriginal Heritage nature.

Street Art / Café Scene

Melbourne is one of the world’s most important destinations for Street Arts. Is Street Art a form of recognised art or is it mere graffiti? – to appreciate this is to understand the social and political nuances created by the artists.

Federation Square

A huge inspirational open public space which features displays for a variety of artists, organisations and content providers. A must see and must been venue for all visitors to Melbourne.

Library – a collection of well-known literary works

Visit one of the oldest buildings in the city centre. For History buffs, taking a tour through the Library’s heritage spaces will help develop an understanding of how European settlement impacted the Aboriginal people of Victoria. There are also many hands-on activities to satisfy the curiosity of the younger students and turn library visits into one of fun and great learning experience.
