School of the Air

School of the Air Review

What do children who live hundreds of miles from the nearest school do for education? Find out at this informative visitor center, which harbors a working school within its walls. Uniquely Australian, discover how distance education has been delivered to the country's most remote parts since 1951; from pedal-operated radio systems to interactive online classes, it's come a long way. Best time to visit is before 3 pm on a schoolday so you can watch a live lesson, outside of school hours you can see a recorded lesson.
