What's On These School Holidays

Schools Out and Fun Is In!

School holidays are here and while the kids can't wait for this time of year, parents are kept busy trying think of ways to keep them occupied - it can be stressful! 

But stress no more - we've put together a few suggestions to help ease your pain and keep the children happy at the same time.

 

EMPIRE THEATRE:  ERTH’S PREHISTORIC AQUARIUM

WHEN:  Tuesday 23rd – Wednesday 24th

WHERE:  54-56 Neil Street, Toowoomba

Deep below the surface, submerged below time, swam some of the world’s most amazing prehistoric marine reptiles.

For the very first time, you are invited to dive in and meet these aquatic critters in person. What does a Plesiosaurs skin feel like? Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium invites children to step into the action of the performance; each show performers will invite a small number of carefully selected young divers to join them on their quest to the bottom of the ocean, to ‘swim’ with an amazing array of aquatic creatures from bygone eras.

Connecting young audiences to the real science of palaeontology, Erth’s prehistoric creatures are unmistakably ‘alive’ and mostly friendly, in this fun, educational and unique performance that will delight all audiences from ages 5 years and up.
