  • Barking Gecko Family Fun Day this Sunday, March 24, from 10am to 2pm at Elizabeth Quay
  • Free Adventure Pack give-aways and a Great Gecko Trail for children and families to explore

Elizabeth Quay will host a hub of family-friendly activity this Sunday, March 24, with Barking Gecko Theatre turning the precinct into an adventure trail for children and families.

This free event is supported by the Cook Labor Government and attendees can expect Barking Gecko-themed activities, including complimentary rides on the Elizabeth Quay Carousel, exciting adventures at the Bell Tower, and exclusive Adventure Packs – all free of charge.

Participants will use their special Passport from their Adventure Pack to follow the Great Gecko Trail throughout the Elizabeth Quay Precinct, solving clues, and receiving give-aways along the way.

More than 3,000 individuals are already registered, including 1,700 children, for the family fun day.

The Cook Labor Government continues to deliver and support a diverse range of activities at Elizabeth Quay to drive more vibrancy into the Perth CBD.

Comments attributed to Lands Minister John Carey:

“This is a brilliant fun, free event for families and children, supported by the Cook Labor Government.

“Barking Gecko is a Western Australian icon and has long-been our State’s flagship theatre company for WA children and families.

“Events like this are bringing our city to life, adding vibrancy and cultivating meaningful partnerships between our excellent CBD businesses and not-for-profits, like Barking Gecko Theatre.

“This exhibition is but one of the many free community activities we’re delivering at Elizabeth Quay driving both tourists and the people of Perth into the heart of the city.”
