Risk Plan and Safe Behaviour Code on Melbourne Walks Excursions

See Prices & Bookings

Our SCHOOL TOURS PROGRAM has been inspiring students since 1991 with over fifty imaginative excursions. We create, blend and design experiences that excite students to meet specific learning outcomes and curriculum guidelines. Our tours comply with the Victorian Government and Education Department Covid Guidelines.

SAFETY is our priority on Melbourne Walks.  To get the very best from our tours, we ask participating students and adults to follow our EXCURSION SAFE BEHAVIOUR CODE below: 

  • To maximise learning, teachers need to ensure that students and volunteers are attentive and respectful. This includes not conversing with each other or using mobile phones when the guide is speaking.
    WE stop every few minutes at a safe learning location. We ask all students to come up close to the walk leader so they can hear. If there is difficulty in hearing, always advise the walk leader promptly.
    MELBOURNE  Walks should be informed in advance if any participants have mobility issues so we can plan appropriate routes.
    ALL teachers must have a copy of the Melbourne Walks booking itinerary with them on the day. This contains essential details of walk leader contacts, meeting and finishing locations and times.
    OUR walking tours travel moderate distances and proceed at a relaxed walking pace so participants do not need to run or hurry. Participants will benefit from walking together as a single group not trailing behind. We prefer schools not to organise students in pairs in a line which can disrupt pedestrians and slow down street crossings.
    PARTICIPANTS including teachers must advise the walk leader if they are leaving the group.
    PLEASE follow all the instructions provided by the walk leaders including road safety and group movements.
    TEACHER-to-student ratios must comply with Education Department excursion regulations.
    PARTICIPANTS should note the weather report for the day and dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Students should carry with them as little as practical to avoid tiredness and heat stress.
    PARTICIPANTS should carry water on hot days or walk leaders can advise of locations with water/taps.
