The Australian Museum displays thousands of cultural objects that tell the story of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations’ beauty, complexity and diversity.

During this educator-led program students will investigate how First Nations peoples care for Sea Country in diverse ways and learn about sustainable practices.

Any changes to numbers or cancellations must be made in writing by emailing before the date for Final Confirmation (14 days prior to your visit).

Final booking numbers must be confirmed at least 14 days prior to the scheduled visit.

A tax invoice will be issued prior to your visit based on Final Confirmation details.

A tax invoice based on Final Confirmation details will be issued prior to your visit or session.

Please advise at the time of booking if the tax invoice needs to be issued to a different contact name or email address. NSW Department of Education schools that use the EDConnect payment system should advise this at time of booking and provide a purchase order number if required.

Our payment terms are net 14 days. However, it is the AM’s strong preference that bookings be paid in full prior to the visit.

Adjustments on the day – the AM will adjust the invoice amount and you must pay the difference where:
i) Group numbers increase from Final Confirmation numbers; or
ii) the Group changes to a more expensive booking/ticket.

The adjusted invoice payment terms are net 14 days. To be clear, where numbers are less than Final Confirmation numbers, no deductions or refunds will be given.
