In collaboration with Awesome Arts Festival, the Hu木an - A Sensory Forest Adventure will be at WA Museum Boola Bardip, experience the sights, sounds and smells of a luscious Singaporean forest!

Join WA Maritime Museum for some special Fremantle Buster It's All About Play sessions with a focus on intergenerational sharing, to spark young imaginations about the differences between 'then' and 'now'.

Can the kids survive without Mum and Dad? At the WA Shipwrecks Museum, they’re castaways stranded on a desert island, to survive, follow the trail clues to get to safety!

Finally, before they return home, don’t miss the MASSIVE Dinosaurs of Patagonia!

Alongside this amazing exhibition are many dinosaur themed events and activities to look forward to.
