Pi­rates to over­run Kelly Tarl­ton’s

Central Leader - - News -

Sail down to Kelly Tarl­ton’s th­ese July hol­i­days for salty tales and songs, trea­sure hunts, prizes and more!

Go hunt­ing in the NIWA Interactive Room and along the trea­sure trail for the elu­sive trea­sure, dis­cover in­ter­est­ing facts along the way, take the wheel of the pi­rate ship and in­ter­act with a life-sized, life-like Great White ro­botic shark head!

For the du­ra­tion of the hol­i­days, StarFish Magic will be putting on four shows full of sto­ries and songs about pi­rates daily be­tween 10.30am and 12.30pm. Plus take part in the colour­ing com­peti- tion and go in the draw to win great choco­late fish prizes!

One lucky trea­sure­hunter will win a Maui Short Break and a fam­ily pass to dis­cover the un­der­ground labyrinths of the fa­mous Wait­omo Glow­worm, Ruakuri and Aranui Caves. And be sure to check out Kelly Tarl­ton’s favourites.

The Antarc­tic En­counter is an ex­pe­ri­ence full of ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­plore the wilds of the Antarc­tic - past, present and be­yond. Liv­ing in this frozen habi­tat are play­ful colonies of king and gen­too pen­guins. There is no closer en­counter with th­ese mag­nif­i­cent birds.

Stingray Bay gives a tan­ta­lis­ing glimpse of th­ese mag­nif­i­cent an­i­mals with their two-me­tre wing­span and long barbed tails.

In the Un­der­wa­ter World travel deep be­neath the ocean on a mov­ing walk­way. Through an acrylic tun­nel you will ex­pe­ri­ence a scuba diver’s view as a myr­iad of ocean life sur­rounds you. See gi­ant stingrays glide over­head and mo­ray eels lurk­ing in the rocks, then come face to face with a pi­rate’s most feared preda­tor - sharks - only cen­time­ters away.

Kelly Tarl­ton’s is lo­cated at 23 Ta­maki Drive, Auck­land. Open seven days 9am to 6pm (last ad­mis­sion 5pm). Ad­mis­sion: Adults $29.50, chil­dren 4-14 years $14, chil­dren un­der 3 free. Fam­ily passes from $48 for one adult and two chil­dren. Phone: 0800 80 50 50; www.kel­ly­tarl­tons.co.nz.
