There will also be plenty of free entertainment and activities for the whole family including local bush band Stringybark, Wuruniri Music and Dance Group, a reptile show, sheep shearing demonstrations, thong throwing competitions, amusement rides and free laser tag.

There will also a typical Aussie baaa-becue, with a sausage sizzle to be prepared by local service groups Wahroonga Rotary and St Ives Lions in return for a gold coin donation.
