School & Parents
We educated people via traveling experience. You can try it too.
Our programs Expeditions
Our program is an extraordinary journey abroad for students. In stark contrast to our school education, the main goal of our campaign is world peace. Every student tries to find the real meaning of life during travel by meeting different different places and people, and sharing his love with others is our wish. Students develop resilience, critical leadership skills and thoughtfulness through a spirit journey that is the future of tomorrow.
More than a buzz word, mindfulness is particularly important to us. During our travels, every student will have to stay away from material things and try to connect with them without them.
On the expedition students participate in a community project, breathtaking treks and deep cultural immersion as they explore some of the most spectacular places on earth. These can be tailored to meet individual school curriculum requirements, so just ask us how.
Community Service Tours
Designed individually for your school, our Community Service Tours allow groups to focus on a theme of their choice, from sustainable community projects to sites of historical significance to jaw-dropping natural wonders all around the world. Looking for a language, history, parent/child or arts tour? We do that too, simply get in touch to learn more.
School Leaver Journeys
A positive alternative to the tired and worn out schoolies trips, Schoolies Unearthed is a unique experience designed for those who like to do things a little differently. An incredible 10 or 12-day journey to one of four countries, Aussie and Kiwi school leavers travel together to explore new and vibrant parts of the world whilst contributing to a sustainable community project. Accompanied by an Antipodeans leader, our teams fully immerse themselves in a new culture, discovering the incredible food, lively locals and stunning scenery along the way. We work with both schools and individuals to create incredible post-school journeys overseas. More about Schoolies Unearthed >>
Countries we go to
Antipodeans travels to the four corners of the world, from Borneo to Peru. You can view the full list of countries you can oranise a trip to here. You can also view our interactive Experience Guide, which details some of the unique tours and trips we offer.
We are proud to work closely with international communities who share our vision for the future and offer immersive experiences for students and we will continue to develop these global partnerships in response to school needs, so if you don’t see the country you want to go to, get in touch.
How we support you
Our programs are designed to relieve teachers of the logistical burden that comes with organising an overseas trip for students. A dedicated Operations Manager is appointed to guide you smoothly through the process and is the single point of contact for schools, teachers and parents ensuring consistency and ease of communication. All Operations Managers are extensively trained and supported by our experienced Operations Team who, between them, have over 40 years experience working with Antipodeans.

We sent away our children and in return received young adults who have a better outlook and appreciation of humanity. It was well worth the investment. Thank you to all involved.

Why choose us?
We love schools. And they love us, too.
We don’t see ourselves as someone selling you a trip. We see ourselves as the people helping you create a great experience for yourself and your students. We are your trip planners, educators, cultural gurus, operations managers; your one point of contact; your shoulder, ear and problem-solver.
For over 28 years we’ve worked with high schools to provide challenging overseas adventures for students. We don’t take our schools for granted. We know it starts with you. Antipodeans are privileged to work with some of the most passionate educators in Australia and New Zealand and without them, these incredible overseas learning experiences would never be possible. Because of this, we want to help our educators as much as we can, so we do things a bit differently. See how:
