Event description
Join us for a lively and varied array of traditional games from the Aboriginal Community and from Colonial times.

About this event

Aboriginal children traditionally learnt culture and survival skills through games, music, dance and storytelling. Colonial children also developed their skills through play – skittles, hopscotch, string and clapping games were just some of their favourite pastimes.

Learn some animal tracking skills, develop your bush awareness, get creative with string and just generally have a fun time while considering what it was like to live more simply and in harmony with the environment.

Bookings are essential. This program is suitable for primary school aged children 7- 11 years. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring water, snack and a hat.

This is a Covid-safe event, and numbers will be strictly enforced. Unfortunately this means that anyone who is not registered will be turned away on the day, and not be able to participate. Please bring a copy of your ticket (a copy on your phone is fine as we just need to sight it), and we will mark you off the list as you arrive. Please do not attend if you have any cold/flu symptoms, or if you have attended any Covid hot-spots in the past 14 days as listed by NSW Health and/or have been asked to self-isolate by NSW Health.

Please also be aware that that the event may be scheduled to be held, or will be held, during a time at which one or more Government directions or regulations may be in force regarding the number of persons attending an event (or the holding of the event itself).

a. cancel or postpone the program or activity;

b. reduce the number of persons who may attend the program or activity;

In which case You may receive a refund in accordance with our Terms and Conditions of the COVID-19 Refunds and Exchanges. You agree to comply with all Government directions, orders and regulations relevant to attending live events, which may be in place at the time of the event.
