CANCELLED - Splashfest 2020

Based on latest information from the Bureau of Meterology and Department of Health relating to inclement weather and health concerns amid Coronavirus fears, the City of Nedlands has reluctantly cancelled its much-love annual water-based event for children and young people.  The decision to cancel was not an easy one to make but the right one based on latest information the City has received.

Splashfest was to be held on Sunday 15 March on the Paul Hasluck Reserve in Dalkeith but will now no longer go ahead.  

The City of Nedlands apologies for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.  We hope to see children, young people and their families back enjoying a better-than-ever Splashfest in 2021!



Keep your cool and beat the heat on 15 March as the annual Splashfest takes over Paul Hasluck Reserve, presented by the City of Nedlands and Nedlands Youth Advisory Council.

From 2pm-5pm, it’s an afternoon of free fun in the sun with water across a variety of slides, rides, games, stalls and more.

A chillout marquee will also be on hand, giving people a chance to relax, take a break and enjoy a range of entertainment from young and local musical acts.

Splashfest is known as a popular annual event for youth, children and families, creating a dynamic hub of music, recreation and performance. 

Splashfest celebrates our region’s young people and everything they contribute to a vibrant community. Each year, the City of Nedlands provides free activities that promote inclusiveness, active lifestyles and the importance of simply enjoying youth.
This event is really aimed at bringing young people in our community together in a safe and inclusive environment, where they can engage in a fun and healthy way. If you remember the joy of running under the sprinkler on a hot day or using a slip’n’slide on the lawn, Splashfest takes these little joys and provides them on a much bigger and exciting scale.

Paul Hasluck Reserve is located on the Esplanade, Dalkeith (between Nedlands Yacht Club and Perth Flying Squadron Yacht Club).

The north end of Paul Hasluck Reserve will be allocated to parking, including two rows of designated ACROD parking. The south end of the reserve will be for the main event. A map for parking reference can be found below
