Beyond the classroom of the AMI 12-18 Diploma in Western Australia

As the commencement of the AMI Montessori 12-18 Diploma draws near, those of you coming from overseas may be wondering if there will be anything else to do while you’re in Fairbridge Village⁠—other than studying.

The good news is that, yes, there is plenty to do. A quick look at the tourism website for Western Australia reveals there is so much this region has to offer.

The Western Australia coastline is dotted with beaches that have long stretches of white sand and clear blue waters.

A short drive from Fairbridge will take you to Town Beach and Halls Head Beach in Mandurah, the nearest coastal town, which is also known as Perth’s aquatic playground with its beaches, waterways and wetlands. You can swim with dolphins, go whale watching and do just about any water sports you can think of.

If nature is more your thing, Ranger Red’s Zoo and Conservation Park is a mere 30-minute drive away where you can meet the Australian native animals unique to this part of the world. And for those who enjoy good food and drinks, you can sample the best local wines along with the gourmet food from the region in the nearby wineries.

These are just a few suggestions for what else you can do beyond the classroom or might consider in your travel before or after the course. Visit the WA website to explore more options.
