Friday 9 Nov – WIRAC is hosting a children’s Rockwall & Disco party from 5.30-8.30pm so that means the parents can enjoy the night off while we keep the children entertained. Rockwall, dancing, stadium inflatable, games and even some dinner (Red Rooster meal & drink) are included. Just $15 per child – must be 7years + and bookings are essential.

Sat & Sun 10/11 Nov – Half price pool entry for one and all and we will have our brand new pool inflatable up from 12 noon. Bring a picnic lunch or BBQ and stay for the day!
