The Good Friday Appeal invites you to attend Kids Day Out

The Good Friday Appeal encourages Victorians of all ages to come along to the 2017 Kids Day Out. This annual event is a great way to bring the whole family together for a day of amusement, activities and entertainment, all while raising much needed funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Come April 14th, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will be transformed into a fun filled family festival! Entry is free and all events and activities are participation by donation.


“The Kids Day Out, is a great way to get involved in the Good Friday Appeal!” says Good Friday Appeal Director, Anne Randall. “With all the activities, sights, sounds and tastes, it has something for everyone!”

With more than 80,000 people expected to attend the event this year, we encourage Victorians to come and participate, donate and enjoy the 2017 Kids Day Out!
