School trips


The Age of Fishes Museum aims to stimulate and develop a students interest in fossils and broaden their understanding of how fossils tell us about the different kinds of organisms that lived on the earth and how they have replaced one another over geological time.


There is excellent group accommodation for schools at Eddy's of Canowindra.

Mini (1-2 hour) fossil digs may also be organised as part of the visit at extra cost. These are exciting learning experiences for students which will awaken their interest and encourage them to further their studies.
