For our Y Not Tweens we’ll also have daily Graffiti sessions. All easels, boards, spray paints and protective masks will be provided so it’s time to get really creative.

Tweens can also practise their skateboarding tricks, with sessions designed to show your kids how to skateboard safely.

Our resident Trapeze will of course be there too, so your kids can spruce up their circus skills.

Not to mention our dedicated Cinema, screening the latest and the best blockbusters.

Family Camping

Family Camping

We appreciate that families want to rock out, but may still need a decent night’s sleep. Our Family Camping area is still heaps of fun, but a little less hectic.

The campsite is situated close to the carpark, so you don’t need to lug your kids stuff for ages from the car. There are separate toilets to the rest of the campsites and showers just for families.

New for 2019 the Family Campsite will be equipped with baby baths, free nappies and changing facilities so it’s perfect for those parents with really little ones.

We’ll also have an evening campfire with Marshmallow toasting, as well as storytelling from early in the morning.
