Inviting kids, mums and dads to come and build a giant art installation out of bamboo for the Cairns Children's Festival.

Bamboo is an ancient construction material and is still used today for all sorts of structures. The bamboo used in Bamboo Connect comes from stands that were originally planted by Chinese market gardeners on the slopes of Mt Whitfield for use as garden trellises.

They are a popular feature of the Red Arrow walking track but need regular maintenance to keep from spreading too far into native bushland. 

If you enjoy construction toys, these workshops are for you!
