ECOEducation is the environmental education division of ECOllaboration, a not for profit conservation organisation that has been operating on the Sunshine Coast for nearly 30 years. We are a passionate bunch of scientists and teachers who enjoy communicating science to school students and the wider community, with the aim of building resilience in our landscape so it is here for future generations to enjoy.

ECOEducation runs dozens of excursions and incursions across the Sunshine Coast region each year, to students from Prep to Year 12 and the general community. We cover a wide range of environmental topics spread across the curriculum.  Subjects include coastal processes, catchment health, natural processes, the impacts of human activity, managing biodiversity, taxonomy, hydrology, geomorphology, natural hazards, water quality & many more.

Expert Knowledge

Students have the opportunity to learn from former teachers and experts in the field of natural resource management with 30yrs combined experience.


We offer primary and secondary school field trips, school camps, outside school hours & vacation care programs and workshops. 


We conduct customised Australian Curriculum linked field trips & workshops covering: Science, HASS, Biology, Chemistry & Geography.

Citizen Science

We coordinate a range of all ages citizen science activities such as: WaterWatch, Frog Monitoring, RiverPatrol and PlatypusWatch.


Teachers and students have reported back that they highly enjoyed the sessions and found them a great link between the real world and what we have been learning in the classroom. Thank you also for being flexible with our times and the weather conditions. Looking forward to working together in the future.

My class recently participated in the Kids in Action Environmental Day. Your organisation ran a great workshop at Wappa Dam educating the kids about water health and the creatures found in the waterways.

It was a terrific learning experience for all involved and we were fortunate and grateful to be accompanied by very experienced people in their field of expertise.

Good morning Trevor and team, I wanted to thank you all for the awesome experience you created for our Year 7’s last week. The student and teacher feedback were overwhelmingly positive 😊 We are definitely keen to continue this into the future, albeit with smaller class numbers! Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful week!
