Sensory Friendly Chill Out Zone

There is A LOT happening at Flavour Fest, and sometimes it can all be a little bit too exciting and we may need a minute or two to step away and chill out.

That's where our Sensory Friendly Chill Out Zone comes in, away from the noise and accessible for all, it’s the perfect place for a little rest amongst all the action.

This space will be supervised by a member of Melton City Council Families & Children team.

The location can be found next to the lost children's marquee.
