Bathurst Winter Festival: Story Walk
Sat 1 July - Sun 16 July
During the Bathurst Winter Festival families can stretch their legs and enjoy a fun, rhyming story page by page on display in Machattie park.
‘Let’s Go Strolling’ by Katrina Germein and Danny Snell is a delightful story with simple rhythm which centres on a family spending the day together out and about. Each page along the walk has a couple of activities for adults and children, encouraging engagement with the story and the world around them.
After reading the story participants may find a special key word on one of the pages to take to the Bathurst Library and collect a FREE gift.
An additional gift can be collected upon signing up for a library card. Kids and adults alike can join the Library for FREE.
