June School Holiday activities at Port Arthur

May 30, 2011

The Port Arthur Historic Site has lots for families to enjoy together. Wander through the old houses and let the kids marvel at the way people used to live or drop by our Education Centre and see what’s happening.

Try your hand at making your very own convict brick to take home, or try a peg doll, or discover the fascinating world of fantascopes.

There are two sessions daily, from 12noon-1.30pm and 2pm-3pm, from Saturday 4 until Sunday 19 June.

Activities take place in the Port Arthur Education Centre, near the Convict Church. The cost of activities is included in the Site entry fee.

Visit the Port Arthur website for more information about our School Holiday program or give us a call on 1800 659 101.

Making miniature convict bricks is a great way to learn about how Port Arthur was built and worked - a fascinating introduction to our history.
