Come along and enjoy a day of entertainment with food, music, rides and lots of fun this Easter at the Good Friday Appeal Kids Day Out at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Centre will be transformed into a fun filled family festival on April 19th with free entry and $3-$10 for selected activities.

The annual event is a fantastic way to bring the whole family together for a day of activities and entertainment - and all for a good cause. The Good Friday Appeal is the Royal Children’s Hospital largest fundraiser raising funds ‘for the kids’ of Australia who need much-needed support. This year the funds from the Appeal will go towards patient and family centered care, equipment and technology, research and leadership, and education and training.

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