- We ask that two parent or carer helpers accompany each class in Terms 2 and 3 to supervise the toasting activity
- Grandparents are welcome – we love their stories!

- We recommend that the students eat morning tea on arrival as they’re usually hungry and the sessions can then be run uninterrupted
Schools are advised to book as early as possible to secure a date. Most schools book a term or two terms ahead. Bookings are taken in order of receipt.
We usually have a two class minimum of 44 students for bookings. This doesn’t usually apply to classes of students with additional needs. For mainstream single class bookings, we try to book in another one or two classes. If we can’t, we usually need to charge an additional fee to cover our costs. This may also apply to bookings under 44 students. This is negotiated at the time of booking.
Visit fees fund staffing, collection management and conservation works and are our sole funding source.
Please check the calendar for available dates and email us your preferred dates, grade and numbers of students, arrival time and contact details.
Risk Management Advice
Schools must bring their own first aid kit and emergency medications for their students. All museum staff are trained in e-Emergency, anaphylaxis and emergency asthma procedures. An Epi-Pen, first aid kit and Ventolin reliever is located on site. White bread and golden syrup are used for toasting.
Any confirmed booking that is cancelled within 14 school-term days of the visit will incur a $200 cancellation fee.
