Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

The Kar­i­jini Ex­pe­ri­ence is push­ing a fam­ily-friendly im­age this year, with many free events hosted through­out the week to en­gage with chil­dren and par­ents.

Fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties this year in­clude the Tjaabi Project song and story work­shop, a Spinifex Ex­press per­for­mance, movie and pup­pet shows, a fun run and yoga.

Sev­eral in­dige­nous ex­pe­ri­ences such as tool and weapon mak­ing and throw­ing, bush tucker sources and art work­shops will also be avail­able.

Or­gan­iser Sarah Kemp said the ex­pe­ri­ence would be a good chance for fam­i­lies to come out and share in what makes the Pil­bara great.

“Mov­ing our fam­ily to the Pil­bara is one of the best de­ci­sions we ever made,” she said.

“This year, the Kar­i­jini Ex­pe­ri­ence has been sched­uled within the school hol­i­days in the hope that fam­i­lies from across the re­gion and fur­ther abroad will pack up the tent or

car­a­van and bring the kids out camp­ing in the na­tional park.”

The Kar­i­jini Ex­pe­ri­ence runs from April 15-22, and in­cludes Deb­o­rah Cheetham’s Opera in the Gorge, the Moonrise Lounge and a de­gus­ta­tion din­ner by Fer­vor.
