So much to see and do

There is always heaps of activities and rides for the little kids and big kids. LEAF 2014 activities will include face painters, live wildlife and marine creature displays. You can even pedal your own smoothie. All this plus a rock wall, giant slide, segways, henna tattoo, science experiments and much much more.

We are dedicated to reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfill. This year we will be having a water refill station so you can help the environment by bringing your own water bottle or even your own plate and cutlery rather than using disposable ones. Check out the factsheet (PDF 152 KB) for more tips. Please remember, LEAF is a plastic bag and balloon free event.

There will be plenty of prizes to win for everything from walking to the event to making a pledge on how you contribute to saving the environment.

Kick back with some cool beats at LEAF

Each year LEAF sees up-and-coming musicians and bands perform at LEAF. Watch this space for this year's LEAF talent.
