About An Underwater World

Discover what lives in our wonderful pond in Lauriston’s Japanese Garden and like a scientist record what you have found in a special little book. Create your very own sailing boat to sail in the pond, with Mike Durnan.

Our family workshops are designed to be family learning experiences and the price is per person. We provide tea/coffee cake for parents and snack for children halfway through the workshop.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for An Underwater World are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
