Explore the tiny world that goes unnoticed in the parklands and create artistic interpretations of the little creatures who live there.

By taking a photograph of the artworks before they are disassembled, children will have a permanent reminder of their nature play experience at Roma Street Parkland.

Circus Fun | Run away and join the circus with Physi Kids! The team will have a variety of fun games as well as circus based equipment to ease you into circus life. There’ll be hula hooping, spinning plates, axe throwing (nothing sharp of course!), skipping ropes and heaps more.
