School’s Out! Boredom Busters 2020

The school holidays have fast approached us, and some parents may be stuck thinking: “Six weeks! What am I going to do with these kids?!” But have no fear! 

Our local community organisations and businesses have come together to provide us with an exceptional range of adventure, creativity and fitness activities to keep our youngsters busy over the Summer holidays. Take a gander at what’s on offer: 

 

Hannans North Tourist Mine

Climb on a giant 793C haul truck, stand in the bucket of a 994 loader, take a self-guided tour of the site, listen to Paddy tell his tale of discovery and pan for gold. Open Sun-Fri 9-4PM.

 

The Nature Passport

Get the kids off the screens and explore outside with their own City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Nature Passport! Collect from the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Visitor Centre.
