The Footy District at Harbour Town – Melbourne Star School Holidays, VIC

Tucked inside the Docklands shopping centre and under the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, kids will find all the AFL fun with interactive inflatable goals, training drills, a handball target wall, interactive obstacle course, a game activity cube plus a colouring-in station for the little ones. The second week of the AFL spectacular will also see the addition of the Nintendo Switch & PlayStation 4 Gaming Zone.

Footy Fans will have the opportunity to meet their Aussie Rules heroes with player meet and greets including Richmond superstar Alex Rance and electrifying Collingwood forward Alex Fasolo plus the opportunity to join the VIP event and meet retiring Western Bulldogs great Bob Murphy, by entering the Facebook competition.

Make it an enjoyable day out for the whole family by taking advantage of all that Harbour Town Melbourne has to offer as well as the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel kids fly free special (with every full price ticket, limited to one child ticket per one full price ticket purchased) and the AFL team colour nighttime lightshow, these school holidays.

There will also be the Nintendo Switch & Playstation 4 Gaming Zone from Monday 2 October to Sunday 8 October, located opposite KFC, as well as AFL player appearances including Bob Murphy (Saturday 23rd September 10am to 11pm), Alex Rance (Wednesday 4th October 1pm to 2pm) and Alex Fasolo (Friday 6th October 1pm to 2pm).
