Young Sailors Day
Looking for a fun activity day. The Queensland Maritime Museum has the answer for primary school age boys and girls, Young Sailors 2018. Running from 10:00am to 2:30pm from the 16th to 18th of January the program is designed to entertain and inform children with an interest in boats ships and the sea. No experience is necessary and no actual waterborne activities will be involved, so there’ll be heaps of hands-on fun with no risk of falling overboard!
The full-day program includes heaps of fun, hands-on activities run by retired professional and recreational mariners in Queensland’s premier Maritime Museum at Southbank. Activities include seeing real-life ships and boats, sending and receiving Morse code and ship’s radio messages, learning how to move an injured person from one ship to another, trying on lifejackets, setting sails and heaps more. There’s also a model tugboat to craft and take home!

(last entry 3.30pm)
Closed 24-26 December and Easter Friday.
