Kids go for free at Port Arthur this spring

September 19, 2011

The Port Arthur Historic Site offering FREE ENTRY for kids accompanied by the family (2 adults and up to six children under 18) on Saturdays from 24 September until 17 December.

That’s a saving of $15 off the already-reduced Family ticket price!

As the days lengthen and the weather starts to warm, spring is a great time to get out and about with the family to explore our amazing World Heritage-listed convict heritage.

However money is tight, especially for families, so the Port Arthur Historic Site has a special deal that will give families a great day out, memorable experiences, and save money.

Even better, the kids will be able to enjoy the Historic Sites most popular educational activities and gain some unique insights into the amazing stories and epic history of this incredible place, while having loads of fun.

They will be able to make their very own convict brick or peg doll and learn about how children in the nineteenth century were resourceful by making toys out of everyday objects.

Access to the activities is included in the cost of Site Entry. No bookings are necessary just make your way to Port Arthur and there will be signage from the Visitor Centre. Children participating in the activities must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
