The World Science Festival has been an iconic annual event in New York for years, which is why it’s so rad that the Queensland Museum Network secured the exclusive licence to bring the Festival to our state annually until 2021.

While there’s heaps on the program to keep kids of all ages entertained, the coolest family event would have to be ‘The Hatchery’ at Queensland Museum. Visitors will get a rare glimpse of hatching baby turtles in their incubation chambers and the first moments of their lives as they meet a seawater environment in specially designed tanks. Cuteness overload! You’ll learn about the turtle lifecycle, habitats and more. FYI, at the close of the exhibition the newborn turtles will be transported to the Sunshine Coast and released 20km offshore.

Catch a memorable turtle viewing on March 20-22, from 2.30pm–4.30pm. And the best part? It’s free!
