It’s that time of year again; National Playday 2023 is happening at Geilsland! To celebrate the National Playday campaign we will once again be hosting a free, family fun day at Geilsland Estate for the whole family. We’ll have lots of fun, exciting things to do at the event; including, but not limited to, football, arts & crafts, karaoke, a massive haybale maze and music! This event is totally free to attend and a perfect way to get the little ones out the house during the summer holidays. Drop by any time between 12pm – 3pm and enjoy all we have to offer.
The weather in August can be very unpredictable; sunny days, rainy storms and everything in between. We strongly suggest if you wish to attend that you prepare for all weather; bring along a raincoat, comfortable shoes, and suncream with you. We’ll have water available on-site to keep you hydrated!
This event is family-friendly and we kindly ask that parents, guardians, and carers stay with their children for the entirety of the time they are at the event.
