School groups

School groups are invited to the Jondaryan Woolshed to soak up the history and learn about life in the pioneer days. With more than 30 buildings to explore in our historical museum, children will enjoy taking a step back in time to see old machinery and transporation vehicles, a cheese factory, jail, school room and more.

We offer a range of activities to suit day or overnight visits, including guided tours, workshops, demonstrations and more. All structured activities are facilitated by our qualified and trained staff and volunteers and directly link to the P-10 Curriculum Guidelines for Queensland Schools, covering a broad range of subjects across the various age groups. 


"Dating back from 1859, the Jondaryan Woolshed is one of the largest, surviving woolsheds in Australia and is famous for the shearing of approximately 200,000 sheep in a single season (1873). The Woolshed has a special place in shearing folklore and in the history of the union movement. The experience tells the story of the Woolshed itself – its processes, its people, and its role in the Jondaryan community and the history of wool in Australia."


When visiting the Jondaryan Woolshed for the day, we suggest school groups stay for 3-4 hours. Minimum numbers apply and activities can be tailored to suit your group size and age. Chat with our Functions Coordinator on (07) 4692 2229 or for more information.
