Magical beasts take to the skies over Googong

13 August 2017

Rockley Oval, Rockley Parade, Googong, New South Wales, Australia


The Details

Come along to Googong for a breathtaking spectacle as a flotilla of mythical beasts and fantasy favourites fills the sky on Sunday, August 13.

Now in its fourth year, Googong’s Flying High extravaganza is a tantalising visual feast of imported mega-kites some up to 16 metres long (the equivalent of a five-storey building).

Many of the giant creations will be flying over the Canberra region for the first time. This year, giant green dragons George and Mildred have two little sprogs, the white rabbit has found a mate, and the Big Red Car will take off like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

And, weather permitting, the iconic blue whale will be serenely riding the airwaves.

Hundreds of residents and visitors are expected to turn out for the stunning free spectacle. Bring a picnic, buy lunch from the barbecue, and let the kids romp in the playground and enjoy the music as a DJ spins the soundtrack for the day.

Googong is a community that likes to have fun. It’s an imaginative place and Flying High is an annual event giving everyone the chance to experience that special brand of Googonian magic with family and friends.

And while you’re there, don’t forget to check out our new display village - with 16 homes, it’s the biggest new home show in town.
