Boats @ Cairns Children’s Festival

May 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Free
Boats is an adventurous play space for children of all ages, using colourful vessels to navigate urban seascapes.
 
At a central mooring place, large lightweight boats wait patiently for children’s imagination and energy. Once aboard, the boats are propelled by a flurry of feet, with kids working as a crew for their own voyage across the high seas. As the boats journey, Polyglot artists float as castaways to be rescued or as mysterious elements of the urban ocean. Together artists and children guide the boats to safe harbour ready for new crew and the next adventure!
