The Wonder Room will return to the Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre on Saturday 24 June 2023, offering a creative space for children and families to enjoy over winter.
The Winter Wonder Room will offer a children’s gallery and activity space for children aged 4 to 12, focusing on shape, colour, movement and creation.
The inaugural Wonder Room was trialled over summer this year and saw more than 3,000 visitors engage with the space, demonstrating the importance of having a free and accessible place for local families and visitors to explore their creativity.
As we know, indoor activity is highly sought after in Mount Gambier during winter, and we’re proud to be offering this free activation program in the heart of our CBD during this period. Acting Manager Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre Ben Kilsby
The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre team have created a space full of interesting and colourful activities to celebrate what makes winter in Mount Gambier special, encouraging children to roleplay, imagine and explore a range of hands-on or sensory-based activities.
“Come and explore a variety of creative activities, including musical storytelling, papercrafts, interactive rain displays, a giant puzzle painted by local artist Pippin Ellis, frog craft stations, a cosy cubbyhouse, selfie spots and more,” said Programming Officer Emma Telford.
Mount Gambier’s winter months have never seemed brighter for families. The Winter Wonder Room will be a haven from the cold at the Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre from Saturday 24 June to Sunday 15 October 2023.
The Winter Wonder Room will be accessible during opening hours on weekdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm and weekends from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Entry is free.
