Sunday the 25th February 11:00am – 1:30pm

Watson Street Reserve – Pratt Road, Eaton 


Parents or guardians don’t need bookings – please only book for the children.

Messy mud, loose parts play & cubby building!!

IT’S time for kids to unplug from technology and experience fun and adventure the way it was done in the good ol’ days!

Come along to the beautiful, riverside Watson Street Reserve for a day well spent in the great outdoors. ….Our specialist team will be coordinating an event full of  kids play activities designed to awaken the senses and ignite the imagination!

It’s time for kids to get back to basics…

You won’t find any toys at this event, however there will be a truckload (literally) of bits and bobs which will be used to create whatever the imagination desires.

Part of the agenda will include cubby building. There will be plenty of items to create caves, forts, or space ships… You can’t put a limit on imagination!

Kids are encouraged to enjoy the day with friends and family – it has been said that cubby building brings back many a fond memory for mums, dads and grandparents!

And for those that really want to get back to nature there will be some messy mud play for a real sensory experience.  Mud pie anyone?

11:00am – 12:00pm Cubby building and loose parts play.

Movies by Moonlight

Summer Series 2018

What better way to make the most of the balmy summer evenings than by enjoying a movie in the great outdoors.

The Shire of Dardanup’s ‘Movies by Moonlight’ summer series is free to attend and there is no need to book. All you need is something comfortable to lay on – think blankets, pillows, bean bags or low beach chairs (if you bring high chairs you will be asked to sit at the back). Insect repellent is a good idea too!

Come along an hour before the movie screening time and enjoy the free pre-movie family entertainment and a picnic,  or treat yourself to dinner at one of the tasty food vans attending. Vans will be trading from 6:30pm onwards. Check below for a list of food vans attending.

This is a non-smoking event. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

At least two coaches attend each clinic to make sure students get the most out of their time and are able reach the top faster!
