Children's University

Learning destinations are places and organisations to which children can ‘travel’ with their passport to learning.

Learning destinations are places and organisations to which children can ‘travel’ with their passport to learning.

Learning Destinations provide high quality learning activities and experiences with a ‘wow’ factor and have passed the Children’s University own quality assurance process, Planning for Learning. A Learning Destination can range from a museum to a farm to an airport to a corporate business or anything in between, as long as the activity connects with Children’s University learning and has realistic links to a university program.

Becoming a Learning Destination can be a powerful way to engage with the community and contribute to the success and achievement of young people in your region. Being a Learning Destination is a great way to promote your organisation to the local community and to engage with young people in your service delivery.

Learning Destinations can enrich communities and build valuable networks that help support children and their families in their educational journey.

The trail is 2.1 Km long so you may like to visit parts of the trail and then come back to discover more at another time.

Wander along, lost in your own imagination and visit our interactive exhibition. If you’re really lucky, you may catch a glimpse of one of our ghostly residents.

Bungaree Station is a beautiful rural property with a rich history. Established by George Hawker and his brothers in 1841, Bungaree became the headquarters of an extensive sheep station with 100 thousand merino sheep by the 1880s. It was like a small village, with its beautiful sandstone Homestead, Woolshed, Shearers Quarters, Stable Yard, Station Store, Managers House, staff cottages and even the District Council Chambers and a Church. Today, over 170 years later, it is an efficient mixed farm run by the descendents of the original founder, G.C. Hawker. Consequently Bungaree Station is not a museum, but rather a living record of rural Australia since 1841.

The Jackaroo & Jillaroo Activity book is a validated activity and can be collected from staff on arrival.

Students participating in this activity may develop an interest in History or Agricultural Science and choose to pursue one of these fields at a tertiary level.

Students should present their completed Activity Book to a staff member at the front office to receive a stamp for a maximum of 2 hours.

The self-guided trail is available every day between 10am – 4pm, except when the property is closed for private functions.

Cost for day visitors:

Adult: $15.00, discounted to $12.75 per adult when accompanying a student with a Children’s University passport.

Child: $7.50, discounted to $5.50 per child with a Children’s University passport, or when accompanying a child with a Children’s University passport.

Who was Captain Charles Sturt? Do you know anything about him?…..

We do. Did you know that this explorer used to live in Grange and you can still visit his house- it’s called The Grange.

The Grange was Captain Charles Sturt’s residence in South Australia from 1840 to 1853. This is where he lived with his wife Charlotte and 3 children before returning to England in 1853.  Known as the “Father of Exploration”, he was responsible for defining the major river system of southern Australia as well as pioneering an overland route to Adelaide from NSW and opening up the country’s interior.  Charles was living at The Grange when he left for his major expedition to Central Australia in August 1844.

The main display items consist of Sturt’s furniture and accessories donated by the Sturt family in England.  Some of the most significant items include the flags carried on the Murray River and Central expeditions, Sturt’s telescope and the Desert Peas gathered on the Central expedition, later named after Sturt and the floral emblem of South Australia. This iconic property was declared a Historic Relic on March 6, 1969 and has been registered as an item on the State Heritage of South Australia.

Take a look here to find out further details about Captain Charles Sturt and the museum.

Built in 1876 and located in the main street of Angaston. Hardy and brother Bert were third generation Doddridges working this Blacksmith Shop. In 1965, when in his eighties, Hardy shod his last horse. He kept working other parts of the ‘smithy’ until the 1970s. Doddridge’s Blacksmith Shop shod cart and riding horses, and made wrought iron for carts, buggies, ploughs and tools. Blacksmith shops were an essential part of rural life and this is one of the very few remaining main street ‘smithies’ in South Australia. It is an extremely significant vernacular industrial building. After Hardy’s death in 1981, the people of the district purchased the smithy’s equipment to keep the collection together. The Blacksmith Shop is run by volunteers.

Download and print the Doddridge Blacksmith Activity Sheet here: Doddridge Activity Sheet

Flip Out has ninja classes for those who want to flip, twist & move like a real ninja! If you have ever liked the thought of giving your child the opportunity of having the edge on physical competitions, it starts here in Flip Out Little Ninjas. With child development in mind, we train to achieve the following: balance, co-ordination, agility, left and right motor receptors helping the child react faster to prevent accidents.

As your child develops we encourage and teach them to complete tricks at their pace such as back flips and jump twists. As they develop and prove their skills, they are rewarded with a different colour belt shirt starting with white and finishing at black.

Our Flip Out Ninja Trainers will teach the little ninjas to move like a ninja, flipping off walls and the floor all while having a blast of a time. There are no fighting moves only flipping and agility, so parents you can feel safe. Parents are welcome to watch from inside the arena and participate in the first lesson. We are all excited to see Flip Out’s Little Ninjas bouncing into action soon, showing off their new skills.

For more information, including pricing, dates and times, please click here.

Gleneliz, derives its name from “Glen”  (as in Glenys Anderson, who started the club 50 years ago) and “eliz” (from Elizabeth, the district where classes have been held since the club started). Currently classes are held at the Elizabeth North Primary School.

Over the past 50 years the club has been represented by many of hundreds of students in National and State Teams, Police Tattoo Concerts, displays in shopping centres, nursing homes, school fetes etc. Additionally Gleneliz participate annually in the Playford and Salisbury Christmas Pageants. Students can compete in the two State Competitions held each year at the Royalty Theatre in May and August and they perform  2 concerts to family and friends, Mid Year and at the end of the year.

Calisthenics is a uniquely Australian sport which helps to develop discipline of mind & body, team work, a competitive spirit and a sense of dedication and commitment. It is a dynamic combination of dance, gymnastics, apparatus (clubs & rods), marching, singing and acting.

Calisthenics has a strong focus on deportment and presentation, helping participants to develop confidence in movement and performance and to enjoy the thrill of competing on stage in front of an audience several times a year.

Unlike gymnastics, calisthenic competitions are held in a theatre – participants perform routines choreographed to music, on stage with lighting and costumes.

Calisthenics is regarded as a team sport but participants can also compete in solo and duo sections.

The Croatian folkloric ensemble ‘Lenek’ was first formed in 1978 at Chief Street, Brompton in Adelaide, South Australia by Dragana Brkljača, Dragica Jadrešić, Danica Rušov, Branka Glamočak & Marija Mezić, with a dance group consisting of less than 20 dancers. In 2017, Lenek consists of more than 170 dancers, forming six different age-based groups, where anyone is able to join from the age of 3 years and up.

After close to 40 years, a mixture of first, second and third generation Croatian-Australians make up our dance groups. These groups continue to preserve Croatian culture and tradition by performing to the Croatian, and wider Australian communities, at weddings, functions, multicultural events, festivals, and even interstate. We are also able to display and preserve the Croatian culture through our range of beautiful traditional costumes, handmade by members of the Adelaide-Croatian community, or sourced throughout various regions of Croatia, making Lenek home to the largest collection of Croatian folkloric costume in Australia.

Lenek’s teachers are all past or present dancers who are dedicated and work hard to keep the quality of Croatian folk dancing to a high standard. They strive to have fun with their dancers, while at the same time, guide and teach their students about Croatian culture and dance.

Lenek is most importantly about developing friendships, keeping our Croatian heritage alive and to enjoy being part of our wonderful croatian community, not only in Adelaide, but the whole of Australia. It is also a great way to keep fit!

Classes are held on Sundays between 5.30pm and 7pm during the school term. Cost is $60 for a yearly enrolment.

Luhrs Cottage was added to the State Heritage Register in 1990 and in now restored and authentically finished in traditional German settlers’ style.

Welcome to our Museum, which is operated on a volunteer basis by members of the Military Vehicle Preservation Society of South Australia. The Society is one of many Military Vehicle Clubs across Australia and throughout the world and its members are dedicated to the preservation of vehicles that are of military origin. The museum was developed as a way of providing undercover storage for the vehicles and at the same time allowing the public to view them.

The museum opened in August 1993 at the old Messenger Press building at Port Adelaide and now relocated to a group of historic WW2 era buildings within the Defence precinct of Edinburgh Parks. The vehicles are not just restored to look at, they are rebuilt to authentic running condition and most are road registered and driven regularly. Military vehicles and items range from the First World War to current times.

The National Military Vehicle Museum Workbook will help you learn more about our military vehicle history whilst you are enjoying your time at the Museum. A copy of the booklet can be found here: National Military Vehicle Museum – Activity Booklet

The museum is open every Sunday.

The museum can also be opened at any time, by arrangement, for group bookings. Children Under 15 years, who are accompanied by an adult are admitted FREE, Adults $10 each.

The UDC is a free festival of fun for children and families hosted by a partnership of local northern Christian churches. Around 20 local churches supply the 260+ trained volunteers and the majority of the finances to cover the costs of the event. The event is designed as a safe place where families can come and have fun together, explore different life values and participate in activities, crafts, circus shows etc. The activities and crafts encourage children and their families to explore what those values mean and how they could engage in them in their own lives and communities. As local churches we also provide opportunities through those conversations for children and their families to learn a bit more about Jesus and how he reflects those values and has power to help turn the upside down things in our lives the right way up, challenging them not just to think about values but faith and beliefs as well.

Students participating in this event may develop an interest in Religious Education and choose to pursue further study in this field at a tertiary level.

CU students will collect stamps for each activity they have participated in or attended on the Children’s University Activity Passport Sheet. Before leaving the event, CU students should take their Passport to Learning to an Upside Down Circus volunteer in the Show Bag Tent to receive a stamp for a maximum of 2 hours.

This year the event will run on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 October 2018 from 2.30pm – 6.30pm.

The event is free. Children and parents do not need to book. They can turn up anytime between 2:30-6:30pm and participate in as much of the event that they wish. Activity Tents are open all afternoon and Big Top Shows are repeated throughout the afternoon. The only entrance condition is that children are accompanied by an adult. This is to ensure child safety at the event.

Most of the activities at the event are designed for 5 – 13 year olds but there is a pre-school zone and a junior teen zone that caters for these age groups attending as part of a family with age relevant activities.

Port Adelaide Cricket Club (PACC) are always very keen for new players of any age and experience.

PACC are a diverse playing group who aim for good results but also to have fun! Our players range from elite cricketers, to those who are completely new to the game. The club welcomes female players and currently have women cricket players from eight different nationalities.

PACC’s vision for the Junior Program is to develop young cricketers to play Senior Cricket for PACC or a local Community Club, State Cricket for South Australia and Test Cricket for Australia.

The PACC provides players with opportunities to develop their cricket through:

Freeman/Rolton Academy

A training program for boys and girls aged 12 years old and under. The Academy program focuses on participation, basic fundamentals and enabling players to experience all parts of the game.

The Academy is the primary feeder program for the Under 12 Statewide cup, Ray Sutton Shield and Under 14 sides.

The PACC Junior Program aims to develop young cricketers to play Premier Cricket for PACC, Sheffield Shield and Matador Cup Cricket, the Redbacks, T20 cricket for the Strikers and test, One-Day and T20 cricket for Australia.

PACC have been home to may state cricketers over the years including current Adelaide Strikers player Tim Ludeman.

Statewide Cup

The Statewide Cup carnival is for Under 12’s and is used to help identify players for the SAPSASA squad in the following season. The PACC Statewide Cup program focuses on participation, basic fundamentals, enabling players to experience all parts of the game and translating the training skills learned in The Academy program into match day performance.

Ray Sutton Shield

The Ray Sutton Shield is for primary school aged cricketers and is played across seven Sundays early in the season. Ray Sutton Shield matches are generally played on A Grade ovals and gives junior players their first taste of the facilities available should they progress to higher levels of Senior Grade Cricket.

Under 14s

The SACA Under 14 and Under 16 competitions are played on Sunday afternoons.

The PACC Under 14 program builds on the basic fundamentals learnt in The Academy and starts to identify each player’s specialisation (batting, bowling, or keeping). The PACC Under 14 Program is structured to pour significant time and effort into developing players in their specialisation so that player development is accelerated and players’ match day performance is improved.

How would you like to see Australian Sea Lions in their natural habitat?

Seal Bay at Kangaroo Island offers one of the most exceptional nature-based experiences in the world. Seal Bay has been home to an Australian sea lion population for thousands of years and you won’t spot a single enclosure or cage – instead you can be taken into the heart of the colony with one of our experienced guides. If that’s not quite your style, you can set your own pace on the wheelchair accessible 900 metre (return) boardwalk which meanders through the dunes to a number of viewing platforms.

This is the only place in the world where you can see Australian sea lions at close quarters and walk on a beach where pups play, bulls fight for supremacy and resting mothers suckle their young. At Seal Bay you’ll have incredible views of the extraordinary coastline and sea lion colony, you’ll walk through an untouched dune system, and onto a pristine sandy beach. You will be given unique insights into how these endangered animals fish, surf, rest, interact with their pups and defend their territory.

When visiting Seal Bay don’t forget to bring along your passport! Friendly staff in our visitor center will be happy to stamp it for you once you have completed either the Seal Bay Experience and or the Boardwalk Self-Guided Tour. Once you have been to Seal Bay you may wish to download the Seal Bay Activity Book here –Seal Bay Activity Book and take to your in school CUA Coordinator for a stamp.

South Australian Whale Centre

South Australian Whale Centre

2 Railway Terrace
Victor Harbor SA 5211

P 08 8551 0750
E Email

The SA Whale Centre’s prominent location in Victor Harbor owes much to the former use of its 150 year old heritage building. It was first used as a railway goods shed in the late 1800s, which explains a few of the mysterious and fascinating features of the Centre.

The SA Whale Centre revitalised the historic railway goods shed for a new and exciting purpose in 1994. During the initial renovations the building was given a new roof and floor. The cellar was cleaned out to create the huge open space that we still use today. Many years have passed since the SA Whale Centre first found it’s home here, but, Some of the original exhibits; such as the Sperm Whale Vertebrae, still stand and enthral visitors to this day.

The Centre has undergone a number of redevelopments during its lifetime, the most recent of which in 2008, helped bring the centre into the new millennium. What will you discover when you enter the Whale Centres’ historic walls?

You can collect the Adventure Trail booklet from the Reception desk. Don’t forget to take your passport to the Reception desk to receive your stamp/sticker upon completion of the activity. All students must be accompanied by an adult.

If you enjoyed this activity you may wish to ask the friendly staff at the front counter about the Southern Right Whale Activity Book ($5.00/book) which is available for purchase at the gift shop. Students who complete this additional activity book can take it to their in school CUA Coordinator for an additional one hour stamp in their passports!

The competition is mixed, with boys and girls playing together until under 16s. The younger grades play a modified version of touch rugby on a smaller pitch, and gradually transitioning to full contact rugby on a full pitch over a number of years. We encourage any child to come and try rugby, which is truly a respectful and inclusive sport for all.
