Join in some school holiday fishy fun at Cockburn Gateways
Colourful fish, critters, underwater creatures and even a mermaid or two will be making a big splash this school holidays at Cockburn Gateway Shopping City. from Tuesday, 25 September to Saturday 6 October.
The underwater fun will enable children and adults alike to get up close and personal with both fresh and saltwater marine animals including a shark or stingray, sea stars, cucumbers, urchins, snails, turtles, frogs, crabs and a saltwater crocodile, all while learning at the same time. The marine animals will be up and about every day of the event between 11pm and 3pm outside Woolworths.
The centre will be hosting interactive educational talks which will take place daily between 12pm and 2pm. These activities are free and will also take place outside Woolworths.
There will also be the opportunity to dive into the ArtQuarium, where youngsters can colour in their own fish and watch it swim and interact with others on the big screen. This activity will be located outside Big W. It is free to take part but bookings are essential for the ArtQuarium and can be made here.
The Mermaid appearances will take place outside Coles and are a great opportunity for a photo!
The Under the Sea school holiday activities are a great opportunity for budding marine conservationists, snorkelers, and those who love the ocean to learn more about Australia's marine life and the importance of conservation in a fun and engaging way.
Shoppers and visitors who snap a photo during any of the school holiday activities and upload it to social media will have the chance to win aquatic themed prizes.
