Spice Trail

Please note: This trail is currently only available as a self-guided trail. It will be available as an educator-led trail again from 1 May 2023.

This trail takes us back in history to when the great journeys of exploration occurred.

Explorers were not only seeking new territories but in search of spices which were worth more than gold.

Students observe and analyse the spices introduced to Europe by Vasco De Gama’s route to India and the Voyages of Columbus to the Islands in the Americas.

Students discuss how and why life changed as a result of these discoveries.
