Media Release - Tasman Turtle’s Big Day Out

6th June 2024

The TYTO Parklands will come alive for Tasman Turtle’s Big Day Out on Saturday 22 June 2024 from 9.00am to 2.00pm, with eco-friendly activities, games, food, entertainment and more!

Join Tasman and his team of friends Jack Sparrow, Hoopnosis, Circus with a Purpose, Loop de Lou Face Painting and Carter’s Farm for a free day of fun and discovery.

Ariel The Little Mermaid will be in our very special environment and waste area, Eco Cove. She is looking forward to meeting some little people for regular story reading and talks about how we can better look after her home under the sea.

Eco Cove will have plenty of games like Rubbish Ball and Ocean Litter Pick-up, or test your mini waste-warrior’s fishing skills at Fiskdamm, a Swedish take on lucky dip.

Visit Carter’s Farm Petting Zoo for cuddles with some furry friends, or chill out under the trees and enjoy local favourite band, Obsession, and our talented local artists while you have a bite to eat from one of the food vendors: Lion’s Club, Rotary Club, Not Only Cannoli, Nomadic Fix Coffee and Frosty Whip, to name a few.

Early Educators United team will be hands on in the kid’s craft corner assisting your little ones. Adrenaline Games will also be back by popular demand with their gelsoft and laser tag games for the adventurous.

The Dancer’s Academy of Ingham will put on another showstopper performance! The 2023 Maraka Princess will be making an appearance, assisting with the activities.

Tasman Turtle’s Big Day Out is a free event. The environmental fun filled day has something for everyone, and will be jam packed with family entertainment, free craft and eco-friendly activities.

We hope to see you there!
