Families will have a whale of a time at Phillip Island RSL during the Island Whale Festival this winter.
The festival is held from 7-10 July, over the winter school holidays, and celebrates the annual migration of humpback and southern right whales, which pass the island’s coastal waters as they make their way north to winter breeding grounds.
On the first day of the festival, 7 July, the Phillip Island RSL will host an 11am workshop featuring ‘trash puppets’, which will allow kids to get their creative juices flowing while they create puppets using recyclable products. It’s a fun event that will demonstrate the importance of recycling, no matter your age.
On Monday 11 July, Seaweed Sally will visit at 11am with her fascinating array of marine exhibits and a hands-on experience for kids aged between 5 and 12 years to experience the mysterious world of marine life – the animals, their environment and how to preserve and protect them. There will be preserved specimens and live touch tank animals for the kids to experience first hand.
Bookings are essential for both workshops – phone 5952 1004 during business hours. Cost for Joey’s Kid’s Club members is $5 – or for non RSL members $10.
