Hills Carnivale
The Hills Carnivale brings to a close four weeks of incredible events as part of the Hills Festival. The annual Hills Carnivale on Saturday May 27 2023 at George Willmore Park is a FREE entry event with a whole host of activities for little kids and big kids alike.
For one day only, enjoy a jam-packed entertainment program split between two stages – with one stage specifically catering just for the little ones in the designated Kids Zone!
Kids will have lots to keep them busy with amusement rides, workshops and games, and roving entertainers to enjoy. Parents/Caregivers can wander through the dozens of lifestyle markets and multicultural food stalls while enjoying the talents of the local musical acts.
Kids Zone

The Kids Zone is the perfect place for young explorers looking for plenty of fun to be had. Enjoy a range of FREE activities and workshops throughout the day including:

  • FREE Face painting

  • FREE Laser tag
  • FREE Baby animal farm
  • FREE Wand making workshop
  • FREE Volleyball, badminton, soccer, parachute play, rubber duck launchers, and so much more!!

Ride Zone

The Ride Zone is back at Hills Carnivale 2023. From $2 enjoy a huge selection of carnival rides for all ages. For the thrill seekers head on over to the rock wall, obstacle course, giant slide, or the fan favourite dodgem cars. And for those looking for something a little tamer there’s plenty on offer with the merry go round, inflatable slide, jumping castle, and teacups!

After an evening of music, food and Moreton Bay hospitality, the event will conclude with an extravagant fireworks show. Look to the sky at 7pm and enjoy this great conclusion to the Hills Festival.
