Grab your favourite teddy bear and picnic blanket and join us for a fun-filled family day out at our Teddy Bears’ Picnic!

Throw out your blanket on the central lawns and enjoy a host of free activities for your little ones including free bubbles thanks to AGL Energy, face painting, performances, EnV Slime Factory, children’s crafts with Splodge and storytelling with children’s author Angela Castell.

Children can even take their furry friends for a quick check-up at the Teddy Bears’ Hospital to ensure they are in the bear-y best of health.

They can also get involved in interactive storytelling at Evelyn Roth’s immersive Nylon Zoo, allowing them to fly like a bird, flutter by like a butterfly, swoop like a bat, hop like a frog, swim like a fish or bobble like a hoopla mushroom in exotic costumes for dance and storytelling inside a giant inflatable Panda Bear!

Download our free printable colouring pages below for your kids to colour and bring on the day!
