Red Hill Environmental Education Centre



Our history and environment as you have never experienced it before.

Red Hill Environmental Education Centre aims to provide Kindergarten to Year 12 students with learning experiences that will promote understanding, respect and a connection with, all aspects of our natural and built environment.

The Centre is based in the historic gold mining town of Gulgong in the central west of NSW (Australia) and conducts programs based on the unique historic and environmental features of the area.

A variety of sites are used to implement these programs including local nature reserves, national parks and historic locations in Gulgong and surrounds.


At Red Hill Environmental Education Centre we offer a range of programs suitable for students in all grades. All programs are KLA based, the emphasis being Human Society and Its Environment (Natural and Built Environments), Science and Technology, Environmental Education and Aboriginal Education.

All programs and activities at the Centre support the Environmental Education Outcomes in the NSW Board of Studies Syllabus Documents K-12 and the new Australian Curriculum.

A program outreach service is available to schools particularly in the area of Environmental Sustainability.

Our staff is also available to assist schools with Professional Development Programs, the development of Environmental Programs for students and the development of School Environmental Management Plans. We are also available to address staff meetings.
