Join us for an afternoon of family fun at ‘The Great Rio Tinto Yarwun Valley Rally’ on Saturday 5 August 2017.

The annual rally commences at 1 pm at the CQU University Marina campus car park and will finish at the Yarwun State School, 35 Butler Street, Yarwun with a fete kicking off at 3:00 pm.

The fete will be a fantastic afternoon with live music by Chris Schofield, display by the Gladstone Fire Gang, jumping castles, mechanical bull, photo booth, raffles, BBQ, bar, and lots of activities for the kids.  Entry to the fete is free!

The rally itself will be a scavenger hunt for the whole family, chasing clues, collecting treasure, performing craft activities and rallying around your local area.  Entry to the rally is $25 with the funds raised to help build Yarwun State School’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) program for our students.

Prizes up for grabs for the Best Dressed Team, creative word and most points scored.  Entrants to get all correct answers in the hunt will go into the draw to win a Family Holiday!
