Activities and entertainment on Sunday will include:

  • Free sports clinics – NRL, soccer, cricket, rugby, dragon boats, wheelchair sports, sailability, and more.
  • Rock climbing, traditional Indigenous games and site tours.
  • Live music from local artist Ben Whiting.
  • Free face painting from Polly Esta from 12.30-3pm.

Food!

There will also be a selection of food trucks serving up the flavours of the world, or visitors are welcome to pack a picnic basket and bring a blanket to enjoy a fun day between the beautiful lake and Seven Mile Beach.

Organisers have emphasised that the day will be alcohol and dog-free.

The Lake Ainsworth Sport & Recreation Centre will be reopening the following day, Monday 17 July, for public and school bookings.

Offerings include weddings and functions, sport and training camps, and community/group bookings.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.
