Open Air PlayUP

Are you looking for some outdoor fun these school holidays?


Senate courtyard


Daily, 25 to 29 September


9:30am to 4:30pm

Open Air PlayUP is back in our beautiful Senate courtyard.

Come and soak up the sunshine, play some giant lawn games, or curl up with a book on a comfy cushion. Enjoy playing giant Connect 4 and build with our blocks, or simply relax with the family.

You can pack a picnic (without nuts) and bring the whole family down to enjoy the fun and games. Don’t forget to bring your bucket hats and a water bottle.

Wet weather

 The PlayUP exhibition is open every day 9am-4:30pm, rain, hail or shine.
