Marvel at Ross Potter’s beautiful whale drawing, on display in the new Storehouse Gallery, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the end of whaling in Australia.
Craft a wonderful whale sun catcher, explore whale bones on our touch table, learn fun facts in our whale memory game and piece together a whale puzzle. You can also learn all about wonderful whales in our storytelling sessions.
We need your help to build our whale sculpture using recycled plastic! Bring along some recycled materials that are white, clear or blue to add to the sculpture and see the whale come alive! Be part of the community art work that highlights the concern that there is more plastic swimming in our oceans than there are whales.
