Rides, animals and craft galore!

B&W Fun Park – 9am-3pm

Prepare for an overload of cute and cuddly animals at the B&W Fun Park in Sesqui Courtyard.

Kindifarm will bring along some lovely calves, a woolly sheep and goat, a couple of kid goats some cute baby chickens, a piglet, a raft of ducks and a huggable herd of guinea pigs and rabbits.  

Children can pat all the animals under the supervision of our Kindifarm Educators as well as feed some of the animals with a bottle.

A certified Farmer will also come along with his dog in tow and perform a whip cracking and sheep shearing demonstration.

Once you’ve had all the cute and cuddly animals you can handle, take a turn on the jumping castle, get your face painted (we suggest a wyvern if you’re in need of inspiration), create something wonderful at the craft tables or take your pick from the sweets & show bags on offer.

Reach new heights at the B&W Bounce Park and take on the Inflatable Obstacle Course, challenge your mates at Pass the Footy, and reward yourself for your efforts at the Bike & Blend.

Exhibition Opening

Future Ready presents the work of three classes of IB and HSC students who have reflected on personal and cultural narratives to make sense of their evolving present in a mode that enables them to be intellectually and creatively resilient. They have researched histories, communities, and experiences to make resonant meaning in the forms of installation, video, sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, and printmaking.
