Parents and caregivers! Do your children want adventure? Do your children want fun? Do your children want excitement?

Then during the January 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 9th – 13th Jan and 16th – 20th Jan

Antarctic Explorers is suitable for children aged 6 to 13 years and runs from 8.45am – 5.00pm. The cost for this programme is $45 per day.
