Thank you to everyone who came along to Touch-a-Truck, we hope you had a fantastic day! Check out all of the action from the day with this video of the 2018 event highlights!


Free school holiday fun where kids can get up close and personal with their favourite trucks to see how they work. The event will be in Civic Park, Modbury and will feature rubbish trucks, water trucks, a fire truck, street sweepers, bobcats, a monster truck and lots more for the kids to see and 'touch'. If you are looking for more entertainment then don't look past the free children's entertainment including jumping castles, face painting and Dig-a-Dino. Our friends from Waterworld and the Turramurra Rec Centre (Junior Gym) will also be on-site with some fun activations for the kids!

Food and drink vendors will be at the event to cater to all of your lunch and snack needs throughout the day. Parking is available in the Council and Library car parks.

We will also be bringing back our 'sensory friendly zone' from 9:30am to 11:00am. During this time the event will be a quiet zone with no honking of horns or loud music/announcements. After 11:00am the event will be open to all.
