Fish, Fun & Aussie Sun

Come on down to the Fish, Fun & Aussie Sun to join us as we celebrate our great nation. With live bands and DJs, parents can enjoy sit back and relax while kids explore the workshops, compete in the number of different Aussie comps running throughout the day and take part in our beach activities. There is even the opportunity to take part in a kite making workshop so that you can let your imagination fly high. With $2 rides and free face painting, what more could you ask for?!

We are fortunate enough to be joined by our Australia Day Ambassadors, Brisbane Lions players, Daniel Merrett and Tom Rockliff. The boys will be meeting fans and will be more than happy to sign and smile for some photos. 

To finish the night with a bang, there will be an impressive fireworks display launching from 7pm.
