Then during the April 2017 school holidays have them join the Antarctic Explorers Programme.

Children will discover our Little Blue Penguins, ride the Hagglund, find out how to survive in Antarctica, go exploring around the centre, play games and much, much more!

The programme will be running from 18th – 21st April and 24th & 26th – 28th April.

No programmes running on Easter Monday or Anzac Day.
