Most schools depart at 2.00pm after they have had a look around our other exhibits.


Postponement of Visit

We leave it up to the school whether or not to postpone due to weather.  However in the interests of safety, we reserve the right to postpone if the weather conditons at Ferrymead are extreme.

If you decide to postpone, arrangements can be made for another visit.



The tram is an additional $80.00 per school group for up to 60 students, for larger groups it is an additional $30 per trip.  The tram needs to be booked prior to your visit.
