The event has lots of fun activities, including an animal farm, bouncy castle, kites, face painting, arts and dance.

Creating accessible events

If you are holding a community event, you need to ensure access and inclusion for all. Please make sure your event complies with the Department of Communities - Accessible Events Checklist. This will help you to make sure your event follows disability access requirements.

Specific access requests for events

If you have any specific access requests for City of Cockburn events (e.g. require an Auslan interpreter), please contact the City at least two weeks in advance so we can make the arrangements.
