School Of The Air

School Of The Air is a unique school that conducts school lessons via satellite for children living on remote outback station homesteads. It is an essential service for families living in the outback, and offers you a fantastic opportunity to gain an understanding of the operations of a School of the Air.

This is an educational experience for the whole family to enjoy. Bookings must be made at least one day prior at the Broken Hill Visitor Information Centre. Once a booking is made, directions to the School of the Air will be provided. Coach bookings welcome. Sessions may be cancelled without notice.

Session starts 8.15am during most school days. Visitors are advised to show up 10 to 15 minutes earlier. No entry after 8.30am!
