Our Holiday Programs are designed to provide OSHC centres with affordable, fun and educational vacation care activities throughout the school holidays. Holiday Programs are delivered by qualified and enthusiastic marine educators and provide an interactive hands-on experience with our live marine animals.
To compliment our Holiday Programs, and fulfil demand for online learning, we have recently launched certified online mini courses – Amazing Sharks & Humpback Whales – see details below. These courses are a great way for children to get educated and inspired at home.
All children get to touch the animals, including sea stars, black sea cucumber, tropical sea cucumber, sea urchin and fresh water turtle. They also get up close to our baby bamboo shark (although no touching of the shark)!
We have a range of school holiday programs, so children of all ages can be taken on a new and exciting ocean discovery journey each holiday season. Program duration: 75 minutes
