Burst into Spring
With wild school holiday activities
Enjoy a whole day of family fun these spring school holidays at Albany’s Historic Whaling Station. Explore the fascinating whaling history and learn about the last whaling station to close in Australia. Climb aboard the famous whale chaser to experience life on board an actual whaling ship and marvel at the enormous whale skeletons on display. History comes alive as you join a 40 minute guided tour, operating hourly from 10am to 3pm.
During the school holidays there will also be wonderfully wild children’s activities. Solve Aussie wildlife riddles to locate hidden words in the Australian Wildlife Park, and then use these words to create the secret solution. The Australian Wildlife Park is home to rare white kangaroos, wombats, possums, entertaining flying foxes and Frank the koala. Plus, the kangaroos and wallabies are so friendly that they will hop up right alongside you for a photo.
As you wander along the boardwalks in the Regional Wildflower Garden make sure to keep your eyes open for the friendly frogs hiding amongst the blooming spring wildflowers. You can also bring along a picnic lunch and relax in the picnic facilities while enjoying the amazing view over King George Sound.
All spring holiday activities are included with your admission ticket and are available daily through to Sunday 8th October.
