Fish Hotels (a great place to stay if you are a fish)

January 19, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am



Fish hotels provide habitat for aquatic wildlife including fish, frogs, water rats, insects and birds. You will be able to see a typical fish hotel that has been installed in the Curdies River estuary.

We will also learn about the EstuaryWatch program and how people can get involved in water quality monitoring at Peterborough. Be a scientist for the day and learn to use water testing equipment to measure oxygen and salt levels in the Curdies River estuary.

And the session will round off with a craft activity creating your own fish hotel.

Please bring: sturdy shoes, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent and water.

Bookings are essential. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please register for tickets for BOTH children and accompanying adults.


Please note: This event may be cancelled at the last minute due to extreme weather conditions or a change in Victorian Government public health guidelines. You will be emailed if the event is cancelled. In the event that your circumstances change and you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your ticket so our guide is aware and does not wait for you to arrive.

Activities are managed in alignment with the Department of Health and Human Services guidelines for coronavirus (COVID-19) including the need for physical distancing, personal protective equipment including fitted face masks and good hygiene.
