Gardens' Fun Activity Morning is back and better than ever
The fun just keeps on coming at the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens with the inclusion of
another Fun Activity Morning on Sunday, May 21.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said the event, from 8.30am to 12.30pm, would include a
range of free activities for children of all ages.
"There will be a trackless train, rock climbing wall, inflatable jumping castles, face painting, puppet show, laser skirmish, merry-go-round and more," Councillor Burnett said.
"A free sausage will be on offer and cold drinks will be available for purchase at the Savour the
Flavour Café van."
Cr Burnett said Council was again offering this event due to the success of the Fun Activity
Morning held in March.
"Over 1000 residents took part in the event and provided great feedback which reinforced the
demand for another," he said.
Council's Environment and Community Services Committee Chair Councillor Cindi Bush said the
May event would also include a performance and workshop by Trash Test Dummies.
"The male trio will ensure entertainment all round with stand-alone circus and clowning acts
including juggling, group comedy acrobatics and wheelie bin silliness," Cr Bush said.
"A circus teaching workshop will also be on offer for children and adults interested in learning the
tricks of the trade.
The Gardens' carpark will be closed the morning of the event due to safety concerns. Attendees
are encouraged to use the public carpark located adjacent the Gardens on Glenlyon Road and
walk to the venue.
The event is held in conjunction with the inaugural Children's Festival, presented by the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre.
