With two distinct programs catering to different age groups, the day will be filled with age-appropriate challenges and thrilling outdoor activities, including adventure caving and conquering the climbing wall.
Take a journey through the night skies with adventurer and astronomer Dr John McGrath in ‘Under the Stars’. This engaging presentation is kid and big kid friendly alike, just bring your curious mind! John will show you gatherings of stars, sister galaxies, how to find the centre of our own galaxy, the meaning of your Zodiac sign, even a planet or two. Be surprised how important reading the stars was for the daily life of Traditional Owners. Learn useful skills like navigating with the stars and recognising the increasing number of man-made objects in space.

As part of some of the daily tours and a dedicated event on December 22nd, your expert guide will enlighten you with the science behind what you are seeing, put on a dazzling show with the light beam and allow a photo opportunity not to be missed!
For ages 7 and up, the Capricorn Family Adventure Tour will take you and your children on an exciting journey into the unknown as you all explore the caves by the light of your headlamp.
