Looking for something to do with the kids over the Labour Day long weekend? The Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong has you covered! The Fairnie Park area (located directly next to the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on Eastern Beach Road) will host a range of activities for kids of all ages across the weekend. All of our children’s activities are FREE!

Captain Trash isn’t a real pirate … he’s an unreal pirate! Captain Trash is the alter ego of Port Phillip Baykeeper, Neil Blake. He educates kids of all ages on the 5 ARRRGHS: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse and Remove. His message is to leave only footprints on the sand … not litter. Captain Trash will be sailing into Fairnie Park on Monday 12th March from 10am – 11:30am.
