We know it’s not easy keeping the little ones entertained over any holiday, never mind then summer holidays. We also know that it’s even harder finding things to keep all the family entertained. That’s why this summer at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre we have come up 6 weeks of super summer fun for all the family!

Super Summer Fun Activities

Mini Golf

Swing by the centre the summer to brush up your short game with our fashion themed mini golf course. Head to guest services to grab your clubs, balls and score card before putting your way around the centre with our brand new 9 hole course.

Face Painting

Summer wouldn’t really be summer without the chance to get your face painted like your favourite movie character or super hero would it? The kids can get theirs done too! You can find our resident summer time face painter around the malls every Friday. Don’t forget to share your faces with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Giant Sand Sculpture

What would summer be without sand? I mean c’mon it’s a summer staple. 2017 at Frenchgate is no different but this year we are going bigger and better with a giant, yes giant, sand sculpture created right before your eyes live on the malls.

Check out what’s happening


Sand Art Workshop

Once you have seen our artists create their magnificent sculpture it’s you turn to get involved. The artists will be on hand in the sand art workshops to show the little ones how to create their very own mini works of art.
