Ever wanted to see Snug Cove from the skies?
You and three mates will have the opportunity to do just that at this year’s Eden Whale Festival, with the unique four-in-one Aero Bounce bungee trampoline announced as one of the event’s star attractions.
A specially designed safety harness and frame make it possible to jump as high as 10 metres while safely performing backflips and somersaults; an incredible eight times the amount of movement possible on a standard trampoline.
Daring trickster or not, anyone over the age of two and weighing under 100kg can fly high and experience a bird’s eye view of the festival, to be held on November 1-2.
Chair of the Eden Whale Festival committee, Deb Richardson, says the trampoline will be set up at the wharf precinct, joining an impressive and growing list of attractions.
“We’ve already announced the [HM Bark] Endeavour, and we’ll have the regular jumping castles for the kids too,” she said.
“A production company called La Petite Grande from Kiama are also coming down and bringing their own marquee and performing as part of the entertainment.
“We haven’t booked any bands yet, but we’ll definitely have the fireworks happening.
“We’re also looking at organising buses to do tours of the town on the Sunday, so people can see all the sights; there’s a lot happening.”
All the old favourites will also be present, including the photography competition, Forestry Corporation woodworking competition, and recycling challenge presented by South East Arts.
Ms Richardson said the committee is also looking at putting on several other exhibitions, and fundraisers including a Christmas in July event will be held between now and the festival.
