QMS Kids Arena

The best thing about organising a community event is seeing the kids smiling and giggling and having fun!

Remember when you were a kid and the whoosh of the giant slide just didn’t go for long enough …
or wishing you could jump for longer on the jumping castle when they called ‘time’s up’ …
or feeling really cool when you got your face painted and you could pretend you were a tiger or a fairy princess for the day?

This year, we want to make it special for all the kids who come to the MXR Moonie Yabbie Races!

QMS Tuning & Maintenance have generously sponsored our QMS Kids Arena and it’s full of absolute fun!

There’ll be a rock-climbing wall, jumping castle, giant slippery slide, face painting and balloon twisting.
And, it’s all FREE!

Enjoy a great family day out and discover your fun side at the MXR Moonie Yabbie Races!
