Kids can be mini miners at the Crystal Caves

Kids from toddlers to teens will have double the fun at The Crystal Caves this school holidays with a new creative centre set up in the Atherton Tablelands attraction.

The Caves, already offering families a fascinating expedition into the underworld of minerology and semi-precious gems, now has an activity centre especially for children including free wifi, gemstone fossicking and jewellery making.

The kids area was created to add something extra special to a visit to The Crystal Caves for children during school holidays.

The new area has a craft centre with colouring in materials, blackboard and a craft desk, where youngsters can make bracelets out of natural gemstones for a small charge.

A ‘scratch patch’ sand box will enable mini miners to fossick around for crystals and gems to take home, for a small charge.

For the older kids, there’s a hangout corner with free wifi and a comfy couch to sit back, relax and watch films about gemstones.

The new children’s space will teach youngsters about minerals and gemstones in the most enjoyable way possible – by making it fun.

“The whole idea of introducing this new area is to enhance the overall experience for families – to educate and entertain with a more interactive, touch and learn environment,” said Ghislaine Gallo, manager of The Crystal Caves.

“Kids can let loose their creative side and enjoy the thrill of searching for these wonderful finds.”

The new creative centre is now open in time Easter holiday fun.
