YARRA RANGES SEPTEMBER SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN!



Paper Park Yarra Ranges
is a spectacular playground of tall cardboard trees that invites children and their families to immerse themselves in beautiful Yarra Ranges.

Children’s imaginations go wild in a park made of paper. Towering cardboard trees are the starting point and from there, only paper, tape and nimble fingers are used to create a new park. The park grows as children make creatures, vines and flowers, costumes and impossible constructions, populating the park around them.

Play and learning about our local environment merge as children discover a world of adventures in this magical playground.

Duck Duck Goose: Peng is a freewheeling bachelor goose who'd rather do anything than practice for the upcoming migration. He thinks he's better than everyone else and spends his time attempting crazy stunts at even crazier speeds. In one such stunt, Peng flies too near the ground, hits a flock of ducklings and separates brother and sister, Chao and Chi, from the rest. In this unlikely meeting, Peng will begin a journey that will break his wing and nearly break his heart as he grows to understand the power of unconditional love in the form of two ducklings, who likewise grow to see him as the best father they could ever have.

A cuddly tiger with all the moves, paired with his best friend Sarah the musical pocket-rocket, make for a highly energetic and engaging show.
