Thalgarrah Environmental Education Centre makes use of sites on and near the Centre for most of the learning programs. The centre also uses a wide variety of field sites in nearby National Parks, Nature Reserves, Aboriginal and Historical sites.

Surrounding the Centre grounds is Swallowfield Wildlife Refuge which is remnant eucalypt woodland with many of its original native fauna still living there.

The Gara River flows close by providing more opportunities for engaging programs at all grade levels.

We also have access to the "Old English Garden" on historic Thalgarrah Station, a once large pastoral run of over 24,000 acres established in the late 1800s.
