arrow Spring school holidays program (18 Sept to 3 Oct)
Want to learn about some of Sydney's most amazing places and have fun? Check out Kids Corner, our one-stop-shop for FREE activity sheets and project ideas

The Harbour Trust protects special destinations on Sydney Harbour, including North Head Sanctuary, Headland Park, Sub Base Platypus and Cockatoo Island.

Some are homes to native animals such as long-nosed bandicoots, echidnas, frogs and kookaburras, and many will ‘wow’ you with their natural beauty. Other places feature buildings that will transport you back in time such as Macquarie Lightstation, home of Australia’s first lighthouse, and Cockatoo Island's Convict Precinct. One place emerged during the last Ice Age and another was a submarine base. All have enduring significance for First Nations Peoples. 

The activity sheets and project ideas on this  page are a opportunity for kids (and kids at heart) to tap into their creativity, have fun and learn about Sydney Harbour.

Spring school holidays program

The Harbour Trust is celebrating the spring school holidays (18 September to 3 October) with an online arts and craft program for kids of all ages!

To coincide with Biodiversity Month, we’ve curated a selection of fun activities that celebrate Aussie wildlife. This includes a FREE watercolour painting tutorial for kids. Hosted by illustrator Carlie Edwards (Earthdrawn Studio), this EXCLUSIVE online class is an opportunity for kids to channel their creativity into a painting of a cockatoo.


Art competition

The Harbour Trust’s Celebrating the past in the present’ art competition is a great opportunity for kids to tap into their creativity AND learn about the history of Sub Base Platypus…

We’re inviting kids to fill in and share one of our fun colouring-in sheets, exploring the different layers of heritage at Sub Base Platypus. The winning entries will be displayed onsite during the next stage of works at Sub Base Platypus, the Torpedo Factory Renewal Project. Other entries will be published on the Harbour Trust website. To participate in the competition, download a colouring in sheet below and channel your creativity!

Entries can be emailed to or handed in at the Sub Base Platypus Rangers Office on Platypus Lane (next to the boom gate). The competition closes Friday 8 October
