Kids Zone

Fun for the littluns’

Over 11,000 of you beautiful revellers attended the party last year including loads of young Carnival enthusiasts.

Our good friends Super Pirates have some pretty spectacular plans for the Children’s Zone this year, and will be wheeling out an incredible collection of oversize inflatables, interactive toys and weird n’ wonderful games to keep the wee ones entertained.

Therapy & Healers

Hidden away behind the trees we've built a secret hideaway of serenity. Just a few seconds walk from the main site yet beautifully secluded you'll find a haven of healers, therapists, relaxing activities and workshops. Come put your feet up, have a massage and treat yourself to some down time.
