A Massive Program For You!

Here’s the low down. Short & sweet because there’s SO much to include!!

Harvey Norman Springvale is bringing their STEAM team! They’re loading up the truck with VR and gaming, robots, droids, drones, cameras to run free workshops, T-Shirt and mug printing and items for a silent auction to raise money for Save the Rhinos!! “The boss” is even keen to include a display of vintage tech from his personal collection, which is quite AMAZING.

You’ll be able to enjoy:

  • Museum Victoria’s interactive display and
  • storytelling with Eastern Regional Libraries,
  • roving performers,
  • numerous rides,
  • an animal petting farm,
  • Scout rope bridge,
  • classic cars,
  • a MASSIVE marketplace with retailers, food, drinks and community information, free workshops and
  • Yarra Ranges Regional Museum’s very cool interactive workshops at 11am and 12pm demonstrating lots of spinning objects and a dancing robot and you will learn how to make, decorate and test-fly your own Bitty (little) Boomerang!

Find details and highlights on our Program page on:

  • the Main Stage program,
  • Mooroolbark Community Centre,
  • our Active Living Hub,
  • the Youth Stage and
  • Belly Dancing.
And an added feature this year is the Mini Vintage Computer Faire hosted by Microbee Technology. We recently discovered this little gem hidden away in our vintage shopping centre (The Terrace). Ewan J Wordsworth purchased the original 1980s Australian computer company Microbee, whom he worked for as a teenager when they supplied a majority of Australian schools with computers. He now rebuilds vintage computers and produces computer kits for kids getting into an IT career.
Here’s an interview with Ewan by the Centre for Computing History in the UK on YouTube here.

And for those that can’t go without a map (that’s me), here it is.

Stig Wemyss Author

Stig Wemyss, hilarious character and Australia’s most loved narrator of audio books for children and young adults, is joining us at Celebrate Mooroolbark, at 12.30 and again at 1.30pm in the MCC Auditorium.
Stig Wemyss

Stig is the author of The Tripp Diaries, a wildly funny series of audio books about an Aussie family on a road trip around Australia. 12-year old Nick Tripp knows his Dad is crazy and this epic adventure just proves it! Who’d want to be crammed in the family station wagon for, like a year or something, with a whinging nine-year-old, the fossil parents and worst of all, his 16-year old sister? Come and hear Stig Wemyss tell us some of the wacky tales from The Tripp Diaries. Dads, you are not going to want to miss this!
