The School Holiday Activities Program offers a range of hands-on educational activities for young visitors to Port Arthur.
From 12pm to 3pm you can drop in to the Education Centre (The Accountant's House) to engage in interactive displays, play 19th century games, or take part in one of our hands-on activities such as making a convict brick, dressing a peg doll, designing a convict love token or making a fantascope. Visitors can also relax with a convict themed book or activity sheet in the 'book nook', or challenge their friends and family to a colonial game on the lawn.
Our next School Holiday Activities Program will be held from 26 December - 23 January 2015. Please see the timetable below for a full list of activities.
Brickmaking is one of the popular, fun and educational activities available at the Port Arthur Historic Site
