  • South Hobart Primary School
  • St Michaels Collegiate
  • Lansdowne Crescent Primary School

What does a platypus school visit look like?

A visit can be tailored to suit your students. It could held be at school, or along the Hobart Rivulet. It could tie directly into our Seize it, Snip it, Bin it! litter campaign or not. It can be as little as a Q&A all the way through to creating videos!

How much do school visits cost?

School visits are free. The only charge may be for fuel if your school is located outside of the city of Hobart.

How long is the session?

Sessions are usually 1-2 hours

What days are you available?

We can visit schools on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Do you have a Working with Vulnerable card? 


How about Zoom meetings? (not the platypus!)

Absolutely. We are happy to chat with classes over Zoom etc if that is the only option available. 

We asked kids about platypus this is what they said, Cambridge Primary School visit
