Calling all Superheroes these school holidays!

If you’ve got a budding Superhero at home, you can take them down to the Antarctic Journey for some Superhero training these school holidays.

Kids can join Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Superhero Rangers and save Antarctica by completing a SuperKids training mission. After collecting their SuperKids passport, the trainees begin by making their own Superhero mask then setting off to hunt for the Thermal Villains hiding in The Lab. They can then test their aim at the Kryptonite Toss before completing their training by blasting their way through the Obstacle Course and receiving a reward.
