Grantville Pirate Festival
The one low fee gives you entry and access to Pirate Pete’s mini-golf, the animal park and all activities, rides, games and entertainment on the day and is cheaper than our normal All Day Pass!
Play a round of Pirate Pete’s Mini-golf as you putt your way around the 30 meter Pirate Ship and encounter life-size pirate figurines, including Captain Jack Sparrow. Enter the Gold Mine under the five meter thunderous waterfall, watch out for the ‘grouch’ in the old out back dunny and see the Great White Shark.
Come dressed in your best Pirate and Wenches gear to win great Pirate trophies in the dress –up competitions for all ages. Meet Pirate Pete along with several other roving Pirate entertainers and get your face painted or a temporary tattoo. Join in the Pirate games such as fishin’ for gold, bobbin’ for squid and the wooden leg throwing competition, and then lend a hand in the tug of war.
Enjoy the Blackberry Jam Bushband where the whole family can join in and dance along to the Pirate songs. Watch the sword fights and displays by experienced martial artists and then the kids can join in on stage and give it a try themselves. The kids will love the jumping castles and Pirate show bags. Then meet, pat and hand feed the koalas, kangaroos and other animals in the animal park. Relax at ‘Tortuga’ and enjoy a bite to eat and drink in the new licensed dining area, opened in August 2011. One low entry fee gives you access to all areas and activities on the day. Maru is a multi-award winning attraction, with 2011 awards including being a Victorian Tourism Awards finalist.
