Don't Just Live Flourish Festival at Mandurah Forum
From September 29th (through to Nov)

As the heart of the south, Mandurah Forum always has something for everyone, but this spring, the shopping centre is a hive of activity guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained. As part of the centre’s Don’t Just Live, Flourish Festival, there’s plenty happening throughout October inside and, of course, outside under the warm sun in the alfresco dining precinct.

Kids will love the Jurassic World craft activities, allowing them to explore their creativity with a prehistoric twist. If they’re keen to explore modern day dinosaurs, Mandurah Forum’s Critters Conservation Centre will have plenty of sessions running to feed their appetites for learning. Parents won’t be forgotten, with fun, interactive ways to win dining and fashion vouchers throughout the centre! If music is more your scene, pop into Mandurah Forum for RnB Fridays. The centre will be playing your favourite beats all day long, with evening hip hop dance performances and neon mini golf, ping pong and more taking over the alfresco dining precinct every Friday night.

The Don’t Just Live, Flourish Festival kicks off 29 September with many activities and activations running right through until November. See for more.
