Stepinto the 1800's School House where you can dress up and learn how to use a nib pen or slate boards with the strict School Ma'am. Join the roving musicians and Garrison Crew on the 27th as they fire the 80-pound Cannon - talk about a blast from the past! (Bookings required for tours and school room activities).

2. Meet the Maremmas

Mondays to Thursdays at 10am during the spring school holidays families can meet the fmous Maremmas.

Each day at Flagstaff Hill's 'Hidden Treasures' there are fun kids craft activities at 11am and 2pm like artistic carpentry, amazing animal masks, finger knitting and jewelry making. back every day of the Spring holidays, Triton Woodworkers will be on board helping kids (and big kids) to build their own woodwork creations.
