with disabilities or additional needs, children from Aboriginal and Torres

Strait Islander backgrounds and children from Culturally and Linguistically

Diverse backgrounds. These activities aim to remove barriers and provide

social opportunities for all children, with the purpose of building capacity

and inclusion within the Townsville community.

All Townsville City Council events are drug and alcohol free.

All activities are FREE unless otherwise specified.
