Why study with GOTAFE?

Real-life training facilities

Our Trainers are all industry-experienced, with a strong passion for environmental protection. You'll learn both on campus and on field trips, where you'll participate in local conservation projects and challenges.

Our campus facilities include a working farm, a production nursery, and a creek, so you'll have plenty of opportunities for hands-on, practical field experience, learn plant ID, flora and fauna counts, and land management.

Take your studies to the next level

Our courses act as a pathway to further study at the Diploma level or at university, and you can customise your training with qualifications in Horticulture and Agriculture. Whatever your career ambition, we'll teach you the skills and knowledge you need to succeed.

A world of opportunities

Whether you choose to stay local, or take your career elsewhere, you'll have the skills to take you where you want to go. Australia is home to up to 700,000 native species, and 69% of tourists engage in nature-based activities while visiting Australia.
