What’s On – Activities

The Silver Web
Come for a crawl inside The Silver Web! Make your own spider from recycled materials and add it to the web. Learn about spiders and why they are an important part of nature.
A nursery rhyme in Noongar
Watch Djinda Djinda Kanangoor, a Noongar version of one of the much–loved children’s lullaby Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star on the big screen. The song was written and recorded by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as part of CAN’s Lullabies – a music art and language program designed specifically for Aboriginal families to encourage language revival.
The Grandstand area will be set up as a safe crawl space for our youngest visitors and an area of rest and respite for caregivers. The area will have soft mats, cushions and will have a lullaby playing on the big screen.
