Party Venues

Depending on the time of year, you may want to have your party at home or elsewhere. If the weather is good (and that’s a big “if”!), the kids are content playing away in the garden. But booking a venue saves you from the cleanup and helps keep your party within the timeframe.

Aura love a celebration and there are several fun party options available to you, with each option including invitations, an instructor for the entire party, goody bags for each child and juices throughout the day. The birthday boy or girl choose which games are played, including an obstacle course, soccer party and Bokwa dance time! So drop in to your nearest centre, or email [email protected] to discuss the best party option for your child!

  • Mr Cool can make organising a party so much easier. They deliver a bouncy castle in the morning, call back later with the ice-cream van and/or old style candy floss cart, provide balloons and lucky bags for the kids, and return that night to collect the castle. How cool is that?! They cater for all events.
  • Arrhh me hearties! What’s a party without some magic?! And no better man or friendlier pirate than Pirate Pete, who will be accompanied by his parrot Oscar who will have your guests cracking up at his jokes. Each magic show lasts about 45 minutes and will consist of numerous magic tricks performed by both Pete and his parrot.
