Community - Birthday Party - Fossil Expedition

Aspiring palaeontologists will love hunting for 500 million year old fossils down at our fossil site!

Our Fossil Expedition party is an hour and a half adventure down to our fossil site where your child and their friends will be allowed to search through the shale for trilobite fossils. Our engaging Interpreters will be there to guide them down to the site, teach them about trilobites, and help them search for fossils. Followed by 30 minutes of cake and presents in our private party room afterward. Each child will receive a science related gift and a treat.
