The Australian Alps, a powerful teacher

The Australian Alps Education Kit is designed for students, teachers and anyone else keen to learn about this spectacular region of Australia. These educational materials form an organised resource focusing on iconic, awe-inspiring and accessible areas within the Australian Alps. The contents range from the resilient yet fragile plant communities that grow in the harsh alpine environment, to the cultural impact of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electricity Scheme; and from the First People’s connection with the mountain landscape to the Alps’ cycles of weather and climate. Take a look – there is so much to learn from the Australian Alps.

For more detailed information for teachers, including content and suggestions on linking this resource to current curriculum, see the Teacher’s notes.
