Remembering past Servicemen and Women of Sydney
EcoWalker Soldier Explorer provides kids with an adventure learning about the stories of the significant events and experiences of Australians at war in Sydney during WWII.
Learn about the invasion and shelling of Sydney Harbour from Japanese forces.
Kids will be called into action as they identify and role play events leading up to and including the night when war came to Sydney.
This excursion will include a historical talk about the Georges Head Fortifications, roles and responsibilities of service men and women of Sydney’s domestic forces during the invasion of the Japanese and subsequent events that occurred following the attacks of Sydney Harbour.
