Schools staying at the Deep Cove Hostel are free to prepare their own programs and to carry out appropriate activities as and when they choose. It has been found however, that schools frequently follow the same or similar programs simply because it works for most groups over the years.
The Deep Cove Super Site education resource has been specially written for school groups. As well as containing great place-based activities for the sites you might visit, the resource also includes suggestions for lead-in and follow-up activities. If students have some idea about what they might be about to discover, they will observe in a more focused way.

Things to consider:
- We are very remote.
- We have no landline phones but we do have a satellite phone and the Internet (Charges apply for both of these).

- For large parties, we recommend you book at least a month in advance.
- For smaller parties, accommodation is usually available at shorter notice.
