Kids' activities

Mount Alexander Shire has a range of fun, family-friendly activities on offer for kids of all ages. 

Healthy Loddon Campaspe kid’s activities

Mount Alexander Shire Council is involved in the Healthy Loddon Campaspe initiative.

There are a range of kids activities as part of the Healthy Loddon Campaspe initiative. 

These include: 


Healthy Loddon Campaspe and Goldfields Libraries have teamed up to bring the hugely popular StoryWalks to a variety of locations across the Loddon Campaspe region. StoryWalks are a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart!) along a popular walking route in the community.

StoryWalks are a physical activity and literacy experience in one. Being active is good for our bodies, and reading is good for our brains. The combination of both is a great all-round activity for our health and wellbeing!

StoryWalks are located in the following locations across our region:

Castlemaine – Castlemaine Train Station west side heading along Barkers Creek Trail (Gingell St) towards the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens.

Long Gully – 21 Cuneen Street

Heathcote – Heathcote Playspace, 126 High Street

The StoryWalk books will be updated every few months, and we encourage locals and visitors to walk, scoot or ride their local StoryWalk often, or venture to another town to check out theirs!  To find out further information, or to tell us your thoughts of the StoryWalk, or to report a problem, please visit the Goldfields Libraries webpage.

Thank you to Nacho Station for also being involved in this StoryWalks project.

Healthy Loddon Campaspe and Goldfields Library Corporation acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waterways of our region. We recognise their living cultures and ongoing connection to Country and pay respect to their Elders past and present.

The StoryWalk® project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk is a registered service mark owned by Ms Ferguson. 

Adventure Bingo

Adventure Bingo

Adventure Bingo invites residents to download an Adventure Bingo card and participate in one of six walks in each of the participating local government areas. The bingo cards can be downloaded form the Healthy Loddon Campaspe website. 

Through the initiative participants can spot points of interest listed in the booklet during their walk. Once they’ve spotted three items in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line, they’ve got bingo.

The Mount Alexander Shire Adventure Bingo walk is a Castlemaine city circuit starting at Victory Park on the corner of Barker and Mostyn Streets. Bingo booklets are available for free at Castlemaine Visitor Information Centre and Castlemaine Library.
