IT'S all happening at Windara this spring.

A propagation workshop, an art show and free painting demonstration by Australian artist Richard Rogers start at 10am on Monday.

Then there is the Windara Kids Fun Day next Wednesday.

Starting at 9.30am, mums, dads, grandparents and kids of all ages can enjoy a fun-filled day during the school holidays.

The theme for the day is dinosaurs and special guest is Jurassic Joe who will entertain the crowd with his dinosaur songs, dances and giveaways.

There will be a jumping castle, cake stall, play dough, face painting, a dinosaur colouring-in competition and the kids can have fun in the new playground area.

Entry is $5 per child and adults are free.

Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, although the kids will probably be dancing more than sitting down.

For catering purposes it would be appreciated if you ring and make a booking.

So if you are at a loose end this coming school holiday and would like to chill out with other friends and their kids in a supervised environment ring Windara on 6662 3800 or email

Coming up is the annual Windara Carols by Fireworks, Saturday, November 30 - stay tuned.
