Sweeping, Beeping, Scooping and Digging Things
There's something very attractive about large machinery whether you're a small kid or a big one. At the City of Gold Coast's Monster Machinery Day at Broadwater Parklands in Southport on Sunday 29 May from 9.00am until 2.00pm the whole family can come along and check out the extensive collection of machinery needed to do all those jobs that keep the city running.
Imagine the contents of a toy box transformed into a life size state and you'll have an idea of the fleet of more than 50 vehicles including excavators, graders, loaders, tip trucks, road sweepers, beach tractors and quad bikes that will be on display.
Along with live machinery demonstrations, there'll aso be food stalls and special entertainment for the kids including Po from Kung Fu Panda and Transformer's Bumble Bee and Optimus Prime. Free rides, a little diggers competition and prize draws round out the fun activities for the day.
