Event Details

The final GeoFamily picnic for 2018 will be at the newly renovated Pityarilla Activity Hub (formerly Marshmallow Park) with a Christmas theme! All are welcome, families, friends and guests (no need to be a member, all are welcome!) Don't have kids? Come and enjoy the park and the social networking anyway. GeoFamily picnics are held to promote a healthy work/life balance, professional networking activities, and allow everyone a chance to be involved in our professional organisations. Its also a great way to foster a love of outdoors, adventure and nature play with the next generation of geoscience, engineering and metallurgy students...!

We will have some Christmas colouring, and other activities (games) and it would be great to see some Christmas cheer in action. There is a lot of shade, but remember to bring a hat and sunscreen also. There is space to scoot/ride too, and remember to pack a change of clothes as water play is a major feature of this park!

There is ample roadside parking, and some of the new facility features include:

  • Marshmallow Park is fully fenced
  • The rock hill with interactive water play features
  • BBQs and sheltered picnic tables
  • Lots of grassy spaces perfect for kicking a footy or having a picnic
  • Right next to the two fenced dog exercise areas
  • Brand new Exeloo toilets complete with toilet music
