It was incredible to see thousands of families come together at our first Kids Day Out event in two years to participate in the great activities that support the Good Friday Appeal.

Kids and families enjoyed a range of activities from carnival rides, the popular Teddy Bear Hospital, a Mini Film Festival with Disney movies, Classic Cars, the Woolworths Fresh Fair and more.

We thank the City of Melbourne for sponsoring the 2022 Kids Day Out and the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre for hosting and supporting this wonderful event. We also thank all of the activity groups and other sponsors who make this event possible, and everyone who attended and took part in the day to help raise funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital.

Message from the Lord Mayor of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne is proud to support the Good Friday Appeal Kids Day Out and raise much-needed funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital. For more than 150 years the remarkable staff have been instrumental in providing healthcare to children from across Victoria.

Our wonderful Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre will host a full day of fun activities to do with family and friends. Bring along your teddy for a checkup in the Teddy Bear Hospital, relax and watch a movie, unleash your inner artist in a creative session or enjoy a thrilling carnival ride.

All donations on the day will help The Royal Children’s Hospital continue its ground-breaking research, fund state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and family-focused care programs. Bring along your smiles, have fun and enjoy the day.
