Enjoy the bright, funny and spirited atmosphere of Family Day as the world's favourite kids authors, illustrators and entertainers fire up young imaginations.

Get creative with hands-on workshops and artistic games in the Kids Courtyard, listen to much-loved stories come to life, take part in competitions and activities, have a book signed and get your favourite author to answer all those burning questions you've been dying to ask.

From babies to big kids, toddlers to teenagers, everyone can get involved in our wide range of fun activities. And when you need a break from the excitement, unpack your lunch and picnic under the beautiful gum trees on The University of Western Australia campus.

Don't miss your chance to share the day with our awesome selection of entertaining authors, including Morris Gleitzman, Garth Nix and Andy Griffiths, and exciting international guests Kate de Goldi, Angie Sage (Septimus Heap), Patrick Ness (Chaos Walking) and Mark Walden (H.I.V.E.).

For kids aged 1–13 and their families.
