Onkaparinga River Recreation Park has been denoted as the park of the month this February 2020 by the National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia. To celebrate, you and your family are invited to join in the fun on Saturday the 22nd at 10:30am for an Ochre Play experience.
This interactive activity gives you the opportunity to embrace Aboriginal art through ochre which is a traditional paint resource used by the Kaurna people. The paint was mainly used on their bodies, weapons, and paintings. During the activity, you will get to crush the ochre, make paint, and then paint your own special picture. In addition, the Friends of Onkaparinga will also be having a sausage sizzle on the day.
Ochre Play is a free event, however, bookings are essential and can be made via their website. The meeting point will be at Perry's Bend car park.
