The Bass Strait Maritime Centre is appealing to its younger audiences by offering a story time aimed at toddlers during its ‘Cats & Dogs: ALL AT SEA’ exhibition this Autumn.

Matthew Flinders introduces his pet cat Trim, and children learn about him during a story time and singalong.

This is a is a fantastic opportunity for children to come along to the Centre and be involved in an engaging story time that is low cost.

The BSMC is hoping to expand its offerings for young people in the future through similar events.

If you would like to register your interest in this event, or future opportunities please get in touch with the Centre on 03 6424 7100 or email [email protected]

The Trim Toddler Tale Time will be held on Thursday 30 April at a cost of $2 per child.


Work has begun on a new toilet block at the Miandetta Park.

I am sure those who use the playground will be delighted to see the work proceeding.

The groundwork has been completed, the inground utility services have been installed and the slab will take a few weeks to cure before the epoxy floor finish can be applied.

The prefabricated toilet unit is on-site and it is expected to take about 10 days to assemble the toilet unit.

The toilet is expected to be ready for use in the first week of April.
