When we read the media release for the FAMILY FAIR (12 August) at Rouse Hill House & Farm, it seems there is an activity for everyone: kite flying, jumping sacks, maypole dancing and vintage lawn sports including croquet and quoits. Exhausted by all these activities? Then sit for a bit at book readings by Michelle Law
Sheep shearing, Shetland pony rides and a mobile animal farm are exciting, we promise and so you won't get bored, roving performers are all around including The Deep Sea Astronaut's native birds and a grass trio. What an odd concoction!
Collage workshops sounds like just the activity for young budding craftspersons, we think...
Of course, no Family Fair is worth its salt without lots of food...sausage sizzle, Devonshire tea, fairy floss, a gelato cart and lots of bakery goodies. Of course, for mom and dad there will be a coffee cart -- very strong coffee!
You won't want to overlook the Rouse Hill schoolhouse with mistress Mrs Fox -- she'll teach you a thing or two about lessons and school-room behaviour in 1880!
Parents: Parking is plentiful. a $20 family fee is quite modest for a day of great fun!
