There were plenty of fun and free events in our area as part of Youth Week 2015. 

Youth Week took place from Friday 10 April to Sunday 19 April 2015.

Youth Week highlights

  • Local and interstate Aussie hip hop artists including BAM BAM, Joelistics, Sleepwalkers, Coda Conduct, Sarah Connor, Izzy and DJ Maniak.
  • Aboriginal heritage tour, uncovering the Royal Botanic Gardens’ rich history with traditional music, dance, artefacts and some bush foods tasting.
  • Exploring Sydney Park’s hidden treasures by using smart phone technology with geocaching, which is fast becoming an international sport.
  • Testing your skills and learning some new ones at the KGV Sports Day.
  • The always popular annual fernside skate comp is in its 17th year.

Thousands of young people aged 12 to 24 take part in Youth Week each year.

The City partners with local organisations to bring you a huge range of events throughout the week.
