Do you think local, play local? Getting in touch with your local council is a great place to find event info, as they’ll often be the ones to coordinate free family activities or be able to put you in contact with other community groups who do.
Your local library can also be a great source of free entertainment for kids, with most running regular story telling sessions. Keep an eye out for noticeboards in your local store, or head online to whereilive.com.au where you can search by postcode for local events.
