Celebrate the start of summer with a community fun day by the sea
Now in its 23rd year, this long-running community event sees carnival rides, food stalls and markets set up on Goldstein Reserve behind Coogee Beach.
While parents lock down some last minute Christmas gift shopping at handmade, artisan craft stalls lining the park, kids can get hands-on at a drumming workshop, colouring-in competition, and perhaps most thrilling, a reptile display where they’ll have the chance to pet a croc. There’ll also be a full line-up of entertainment and live music running throughout the day, so make sure to bring a picnic rug.
Entry is free, and donations collected throughout the day will go to the Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick – more that $125,000 has been raised over past years.
