Moore Park’s huge 150th Birthday party event kicks off this Saturday 10 December 2016 at 10.00 am with oodles of fun for every member of the family – and best of all, most of it is FREE!

Here are our top five activities for kids:


1. Cute animals galore

Pat a baby goat, ride a pony, cuddle a sheep or get a photo with an echidna! Whatever your child’s preference, there will be plenty of farm and zoo animals on show to honour Moore Park’s history as the first site of Taronga Zoo!


Taronga Zoomobile

Taronga Zoo will be bringing along their Zoomobile for the day. Did you know that Moore Park was the original home to Taronga Zoo before it relocated to Mosman in 1916!

2. Meet and learn from sporty superstars

Kids will love meeting their sports heroes in the flesh. The Sydney Swans, Waratahs and Roosters call Moore Park home, and to celebrate, they will be hosting free sports clinics, games and activities for kids to enjoy all day long. There will also be a chance to meet and greet the Aussie Women’s Rugby 7’s and see their real Olympic gold medals!

3. Amusement rides and showbags

Just like the ‘good old days’ when the Easter Show was held in Moore Park – your kids can test their mettle with rides like the Cup & Saucer, the Super Slide and a classic, the Jumping Castle. Finish it off with a tour by the showbag stand where they can pick their prize!
