Kids can become a Junior Marine Biologist with a fun and educational new program on Fitzroy Island, off the coast of Cairns. Children aged five and up can spend the morning with the resort’s resident marine biologist and learn about our oceans and marine life through a series of hands on activities. They include a glass bottom boat tour, beachcombing, fish feeding, water quality experiments and learning about the anatomy of marine animals. The program runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm every Sunday and costs $55 per child, with participants presented with certificates at the end. Both resort guests and day tour guests are welcome, but bookings are essential.
