Pebble Painting

  • Thursday 28th January 2021
  • Annual Pass

SLKT Pebblepaint Event 2160X1080px

"During Gentoo Penguins courtship period, male and female penguins will scour the ice for the perfect pebble and present it to their sweetheart as a gift. If accepted and a partnership formed, they will continue to collect pebbles until a nest is built."

We are inviting our Kelly Tarlton's Annual Pass and Merlin Annual Pass members to come and paint the pebbles that our Gentoo penguins used to build their nests last season.

Join us and our Penguin team will select one painted pebble as the winner to receive a prize pack of Penguin goodies!
