Cure those winter blues at FLOW these school holidays
Posted on June 26th, 2015
The school holidays are here again and FLOW Visitors Centre has the perfect remedy for active and curious kids looking for something fun—and free—this winter.
Fitzroy Basin Association Inc. (FBA) Chief Executive Officer Paul Birch said FLOW has a swag of sessions, travelling exhibits and special animal visitors that will be sure to entertain and engage the kids these holidays.
“If your kids love animals this is their opportunity to meet some of the people who care for or protect them including a dolphin researcher, zookeeper or wildlife carer, at one of FLOW’s interactive sessions,” said Mr Birch.
“Children participating in FLOW’s school holiday program are sure to learn something new and be inspired to help protect the region’s special plants and animals.
“We also have some slithering and scaly animals visiting us over the holidays for the kids to meet,” Mr Birch said.
Mr Birch said FLOW is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and two travelling exhibitions from the Queensland Museum will operate daily over the school holidays.
“You might be feeling the cold this winter, but spare a thought for the animals on Macquarie Island and learn how they keep warm in their freezing sub-Antarctic territory with this exhibit.
“Or use a microscope to get up close and personal with butterfly wings, snake skin and even camel fur with the Micro Marvels exhibit, which will amaze and enthral young children.”
FLOW Visitors Centre is a free and interactive centre, right in the heart of Rockhampton in the Old Post Office building, corner of East and Denham Streets, next to Degani.
