A Rock and Water workshop will teach kids about the times we need to stand strong like a rock, or the times it is best to go with the flow like water.

Painting workshops will be held the same day from 1pm until 2.30pm at the Sunflower Studio on Marine Terrace, followed by wax painting from 3pm until 4.30pm.

City of Greater Geraldton mayor Jerry Clune said: “The autumn holidays are always a wonderful time around the city and I’m happy to share the many activities young people in the region can get up to these holidays.”

The Museum of Geraldton will be showcasing an exhibit on Australia’s role in the space age, as well as an astronaut school program or craft sessions to make straw rockets, spaceships and nebula jars.

Museum manager Leigh O’Brien said: “Families will enjoy the range of free and low-cost holiday activities, inspired by space exploration and the wonderful ‘Out of this World’ exhibition.

“Kids can design their own space rocket or create an alien spaceship, and recreate the beauty and wonder of space nebulae in a jar.”
