Fodor's 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.
