The July school holidays are often spent indoors with wet weather and cold winds. With the average temperature hovering around 12 degrees, Bendigo’s Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre warms up the local community with fun and exciting activities for children and young people of all ages.
“School holidays are always a busy time at our venue. Not only is Gurri Wanyarra a venue where we focus on fitness and wellbeing, but it’s a meeting place for members of the community to connect. Swell Cafe is always bustling with activity as parents and carers gather over a hot coffee whilst keeping a watchful eye on their youngsters,” said Jake Thrum, Guest Experience Manager at Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre.
“Inflatable activations were popular with our patrons throughout the school break. With the highest of supervision from our lifeguards, children, young people and of course adults, are able to climb and manoeuvre their way through the obstacle utilising muscles and skills more aligned with on-ground sports,” Jake said.
Lifeguard, Oliver Coad said, “The inflatables are loads of fun for all ages. It’s great to see everyone utilise the activity. Often, you’ll have parents joining in as the kids make it look like they are having the time of their lives.”
