Coming to the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival with children? You are in for a treat. The beautiful Parliament House Lawns in Salamanca is transformed for four days into the Children’s Circus School, with an exciting program of professional entertainment and workshops. Build a boat, learn simple knots, learn to juggle, listen to a storyteller or have your face painted. Bring a picnic or pick up lunch just across the road at Princes Wharf - spread your blanket on the lawns for a relaxed atmosphere and a great program of kids’ entertainment. We have lots of acrobats and jugglers, with swash buckling pirates, boats and adventures.
