Get Ready for ‘Super Chill’ Winter Festival

The temperature in Toowoomba has dipped and Grand Central is embracing it, creating a fun Super Chill Winter Festival for the school holidays. 

Grand Central Marketing Manager Marieke Bridgeman said the centre wanted to celebrate winter and all it has to offer by delivering a range of winter activities, which will run from Saturday June 30 until Sunday July 15. 

“We’ll have a giant snow pit in Central Square outside Vapiano – kids can play in snow and experience snowfall as well.  We do encourage people to rug up when they visit though – it will be cold and wet, so make sure you’re wearing something warm and water-resistant!” she said.

“From the snow pit, kids can head to the snow ball toss station in Central Square, or head indoors to one of the activity stations.  There will be an enchanted winter village to explore, igloo building blocks, craft workshops, an arctic hub, and a photo booth!

“Don’t forget to grab an official Guide to help you discover all the fun, which you can use to collect stamps along the way to receive a free take home toy,” Ms Bridgeman said. 

All activities will run between 10am-2pm throughout the school holidays.  For full details, go to
