School Holiday Activities

Easter eggs… or caviar?

Fish and eggs have long been associated with the Easter festival, but have you ever thought about fish eggs?

See Easter eggs with a difference at the NMDC as we explore some egg-laying behaviours at our touch table and give you the opportunity to check out some fish eggs under the microscope!

Check out our new school holiday activity Reef Explorer to discover life in the intertidal zone or try Fishy Faces; Hook, Line & Sinker; or Sea Monkeys Rock!

The NMDC will be open throughout the April school holiday period from 10am to 4pm, Sunday to Friday.
