11 March 2018 - Splashfest

Cruise into Swanbourne Reserve as it is transformed into a wet and wild wonderland.

Splashfest is a day of summer fun for the whole family with water rides, slides and plenty of other fun activities. The event will feature a huge Aqua Rush slide, a pirate ship super slide, a Ninja Challenge obstacle course, water rollers, a bouncy castle, giant games, fairies, mermaids and much more. Best of all, everything is free!

Children can indulge in all kinds of bouncing, sliding, screaming, spraying, bubbling fun. Meanwhile, adults can relax in the shade and enjoy performances by talented young performers who will make waves in the chill-out marquee. The community event will also have a range of stalls and activities, plus food and drink for sale.

Call for performers!
