Tour Guides visit to Melbourne airport week 7

Tg Week 7 airport visit 2016

On Wednesday the 6th of April, the William Angliss Certificate III in Guiding class took a visit to Melbourne Airport via the Sky Bus.
Here, students were given the task of exploring the area to discover the arrival and departure areas for both international and domestic flights.
This excursion not only gave the students a great familiarisation of the airport but provided them with useful knowledge on how to properly collect and drop off passengers as future guides in Melbourne.
