Why not take a tour of the Arnotts Biscuits factory
The Huntingwood Family Funday was first staged in 2011. At that time, it was as a community event with a range of family activities out on the lawns.
Then, in 2015, the iconic Arnott's Huntingwood opened its bakery doors to the general public. This allowed the general public to come inside and experience a tour of this iconic and amazing biscuit-making facility as part of the fun.
A factory tour of Arnotts
Since that day, the Huntingwood Family Funday has been open to the public every year, and they have raised over $180K for Camp Quality.
This year this event will be held on Sunday 21st October 2018, from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. It will be held at 61 Huntingwood Drive, Huntingwood.
Arnott's will now continue the tradition by opening its doors to the public on this one special day of the year. As always, it will once again be a fabulous day for biscuit lovers and their families. It is anticipated that there will be more than 1000 bakery-tour tickets to be sold!
The day will consist of guests having a range of scrumptious food as well as some exciting performances. There will also be giveaways and raffles, and plenty of scope for the children to enjoy themselves - such things as rides and carnival attractions.
