IcarusFrom Australia

One of Australia's premier stilt walking companies with its unique brand of stilt acrobatics and dance.

Beach Patrol
Swim outside the flags at your own peril!

Sharks beware! These bronzed heroes of surf and sand are on patrol and eager to prove they're ready to rescue. Marvel at their mouth-to-mouth! Be dazzled by their daring drills! Heroic? Certainly. Posers? Definitely! You'll need CPR when these moustachioed musclemen bare their biceps while diverting danger.

Date: 22 & 25 March
Location: The Beach at the Arts Centre

Always Roo'd, but never offensive!

A favourite at festivals around the world, these phenomenal giant bouncing kangaroos can jump up to a metre off the ground and span two metres in a single bound! A crossover of outback macho and inner-city punk savvy, this trio of long-jump medal contenders will be springing into action for the Games.
