There is lots of programming we miss due to weather, lack of time and energy – Vinyassa Disco Yoga with Nickie Hanley, Botanical Drawing with resident artist Gilly Thorne, Blindfolded Portraits with resident artist Arthur Ted Powell, Play With Clay with resident artist Ursula Dutkiewicz, and Make Your Own Puppets From Recycled Junk with Trash Puppets and making wind chimes with resident artist Tanja George. But we leave full and happy after our  free morning outing.

On Sunday 20 and 27 they will have Bunnings  leading a workshop called Build A Cubby House Village. This will be made entirely from recycled boxes so kids large or small can get creative and sustainable.

  • adults can enjoy Brown Brothers wine tasting 12-2pm;
