Turtle Cove

Ages: 2-5 years old

This is the place for the smallest member in your family! We just know they’re going to be all smiles when they spend time in Turtle Cove. We put our best thinking caps on when we created the range of games, toys and activities for the kids aged 2-5 years old, which means they’re not only fun but they’re educational too! Plus, when playing in Turtle Cove your kids will be well supervised by our experienced youth staff. We think that’s pretty cool! From play centre to arts and crafts, theme nights to talent shows – the hardest part of Turtle Cove is deciding what to do first. Please make sure your child is toilet trained, otherwise they won't be able to join in the fun at Turtle Cove.

We also offer children from 2 years of age, who are in nappies, the opportunity to participate in the activity program without the requirement of a parent or guardian to be in attendance. However, parents and guardians must be available at all times to change their children’s nappy when contacted by our Youth team. As always, there are a limited number of places available in our youth centres and entry is a first come first served basis.
