Join the fun at Port Arthur these school holidays

September 4, 2012

Always a popular destination during the holidays, Port Arthur offers special family activities this term break.

The Education Centre at Port Arthur (in the old Accountant’s House, near the Church) will be alive with a range of engaging and fun activities to keeps kids busy.

Make a miniature brick, print some wallpaper, dress a peg doll, make a fantascope or just have fun playing Victorian-era games.

Access to the Education Centre is included in the cost of Site Entry – our Family Pass offers great value for money, offering entry for two adults and up to six children under 18 years.

We do ask for a gold-coin donation per child, per activity just to cover the cost of materials. A donation box is located within the Education Centre.

No bookings are necessary – just make your way to Port Arthur and there will be signage from the Visitor Centre. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

The holiday activities are available daily from Saturday 8 September 2012 to Sunday 7 October 2012. Each activity takes about 20 minutes and will be available between 11am-12noon or between 12.30-2pm.
