The Coastal Environment Centre (CEC) offers a school holiday program with a difference. With a unique theme for each day, your child will learn about our natural environment through a range of fun and interesting activities.

Fun filled, action packed school holiday programs are offered during the summer, autumn, winter and spring school holidays.

This is a great opportunity for children to learn about our environment and how they can help preserve it.

The holiday program is suitable for children aged 6 (who have started school) to 12 years (unless otherwise advertised).

Programs generally run from 10am-3pm (unless otherwise noted) and cost $68.00 per child (per program). Please note - Active Kids Vouchers are not able to be accepted.

Testimonials

My two girls did the Coastal Ranger Day and had the best day! They loved the Amazing Race hunt and looking for fossils. They loved meeting new kids and looking at all the amazing exhibits in the centre. They especially loved the staff who were all brilliant…looking forward to coming back.

Since Junior Coastal Rangers, my daughter has been actively picking up other peoples’ litter. I also think the program has reinforced the messages around recycling and use of plastics as she has been asking about plastics in the ocean.

Friendly staff feel like you’re leaving your child in a caring nurturing environment. The program was structured, fun and thoroughly enjoyable for my child.

The staff’s approach was professional and in a fun way to engage the kids. All knew their subject matter, and made the day enjoyable and informative fun for all.
