Social Activities

We know that you not only come to Australia to learn English but also to have a good time in Australia! Our exciting year-round social programme offers you the opportunity to make new friends and practise using English in different social circumstances. Our commitment is to help you to take full advantage of your time in Cairns, enjoying your free time with other students from the school and also with local Australian people.

Social Activities

On most Friday afternoons we organise activities, in the company of a teacher. We regularly plan

  • BBQs
  • Beach Volley
  • Bowling
  • Indoor Soccer

Most of these activities are free, but for some there is a small charge.

Student Excursions

At weekends we offer excursions, through a specialist tour operator. Typical tours include Cape Tribulation, a Waterfalls Tour to the Tablelands, visiting the rainforest village Kuranda, camping on Fitzroy Island and snorkelling on Green Island. There are also tours to the Outback for long weekends!

For closed groups, customised programmes of weekday activities and weekend excursions can also be arranged.

Please contact our International Student Office for excursion prices.
