Newcastle 500: Your guide to Family Friendly Supercar events

Circus workshops, pushcart races and giant inflatables are just some of the great things happening for families in Hunter Street Mall and Civic Park over the Supercars Newcastle 500 weekend!

The family-friendly events are part of the ‘Enjoy Newcastle’ program, supported by the City of Newcastle, to create a festival atmosphere for all experience in the city centre.

Beginning on Thursday 21 November at Civic Park, with all 26 Supercars drivers on hand for a signing event, and a live broadcast of “Trackside” on Fox Sports.

The Mall will be alive with fun over the weekend with a pushcart challenge (Saturday only), camel ride, baby animals, and live entertainment.

These free activities are a great opportunity for locals to see what’s on offer in the Mall and for event-goers to step outside the precinct and get a taste of local life.

In Civic Park you’ll find a super-sized Newcastle-themed Monopoly board, a monster truck slide, jumping castles, obstacle course and an auto-race simulator. There’s also a dedicated under-six years play area and an adrenalin-rush obstacle course suited to both big kids and adults alike.
