Join us at the best kids art festival around for a jam packed experience. The festival will be filled with awesome activities and performances that are sure to be exciting, colourful and maybe sometimes a little strange.

Festival Highlights have included

Archi Loom: A large 3-dimensional installation made from bamboo poles and woven materials – visit this amazing structure to add your part by weaving colourful patterns with rope, wool and other materials.

Giant Slide: Zoom down the giant slide for a great view of the festival. 

Sounds of Drawing: The physical act of drawing will be turned into a live soundscape in this amazing installation! Pop on some headphones and listen to the scratches, swirls and taps your pastel pen makes on paper as you create an artistic masterpiece. Sponsored by Blue Cross.

Back to the Future DeLorean: Check out this replica DeLorean car – just like the one from Back to the Future!

Lego City: Design and build your very own Lego creation. Sponsored by Miles Real Estate.

Sensory Chill Out Zone: A space to get some respite from the craziness of the festival.

Acorn Tree House: Sandpit for playing in, photobooth for memories to take home, pictures and craft to make and boards to draw your visions of the future.  A perfect spot for your little acorns to play and learn. 

Discovery Land: Get involved with the environment and learn something new as well as making craft, hearing stories and getting some plants for your garden.

Crazy Bikes: Matt loves weird, wonderful and unique one-of-a kind bikes. He makes them and restores them and will show them off at the festival. We guarantee you won’t have seen bikes like this before!

Bubble Mania: Come and make the biggest bubbles you have ever seen!

Hayley's Hoopla's Big Top Circus: Join the circus for a day and learn tricks like hula hooping, flower sticks, spinning plates and juggling.
