An excursion to Tocal Field Days is a fantastic educational opportunity for students of all ages. A number of activity sheets have been developed to meet the different stages of learning and key learning areas.
- We also provide a special bus parking area inside the event where you will be met by our ‘Schools Coordinator’ who will provide a safety briefing and a site induction.
- There are a number of shade shelters throughout the event where you can meet for lunch.
- ‘Tocal on Show’ showcases everything about Tocal College including horse demonstrations, sheep dog trials as well as safe quad bike and motorbike demonstrations.
- Once you enter the event you can catch the free shuttle to the Homestead for a step back in time.
- The special feature for 2020 is ‘Future Farming’ and there will be carp catching opportunities, learning how to cast workshops and the popular ‘touch tank’ will be back as well.
Please consider a visit to Tocal Field Days for an educational rural experience.
