Kids Parties

Kids Parties

Rivers is the perfect playground for kids parties! Our parties are unique, fun, hands on and educational. We have a range of different options to choose from. Leave it all to us, take out the stress and make it an enjoyable experience! Most of our parties are held on Saturdays, unless it’s school  holidays. Parties generally run with starting times of 10am,12pm or 2pm. If you wish to run a party on a Sunday or public holiday, a surcharge applies.

Our workshop parties are designed to suit children aged from 5-11 years old. We can facilitate up to 30 children, with a minimum of 15 required. The focus of workshop parties is to educate and for children to have a hands on approach to create and make arts/crafts to take home.


Our parties are facilitated by a trained Rivers team member who has the appropriate working with children checks and requirements to safely care for the children. However a minimum of three parents are required to stay and be present at the party. When children are younger the adults may be required to assist in the workshop. Many people invite all the parents so they can be a part of it all. They generally will order coffee and platters and have a catch up in itself!


The location of each party varies depending on the weather, the number of children and the workshop you choose. Venues include The Gallery, The Treetops Room, The Loft, The Terrace and The Outdoor Living Room. * The meeting point for all parties is in the main entrance of Rivers (within the gift shop.)

Organising a Party

All-inclusive Party Package

Our all-inclusive option is our most popular package. This is where you leave everything up to us! (You are more than welcome to add some of your own special touches if you like). Everything is included from party to the food, drinks and styling with no additional costs to pay.

Custom Parties

Some parents love to create their own party which is what our custom made parties are all about. You can work to a budget and decide on what you would like to include. You simply choose the workshop party you would like for us to run, select the food and beverages you would like to include and if you want to bring in your own styling you can do so.
