For wannabe pet owners minus the hairballs, messes and vet bills, we invite you to join us these school holidays to decorate your own pet rock frog. Frogs come in a chorus of colours and we provide an array of paint markers for your child to transform an ordinary rock into a work of art!

These pet rock frogs are great for inner-city living and can be easily trained to “sit” and “stay”, with commands such as “roll over” achievable on top of a hill or slope.

Attendees will be greeted with live frogs from The Frog and Tadpole Society and enjoy other froggy activities in this exclusive space. Once all activities are completed, children receive a prize of a delicious chocolate frog from our supporting partner Australian Bush Friends.
