Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

The Rocks, BALLpit (Vivid Highlight), 25th May - 16 June, Free

The Rocks, BALLpit (Vivid Highlight), 25th May - 16 June, Free

BALLpit transforms historic Cadmans Cottage into a virtual space where visitors swim, jump, push and dance through rooms filled with tens of thousands of virtual, responsive toy balls.  

Movements and interactions by visitors constantly change the performance of the balls — much to the fascination of those passing by.

The massed assembly of coloured balls creates a place of fantasy, impossible to experience in the real world. Who knows what external forces may randomly distort within this virtual world; real-world physics could break, gravity could disappear, the balls might even turn onto different materials. 

The possibilities are endless.

BALLpit is created by the producers and artists of PropMill. Their focus is to use design, technology and communication to engage people in a meaningful way, to build emotional bonds and a sense of wonder and, ultimately, to spark joy.

Artists:
PropMill: Daniel Thomas (Australia) / Joshua Wilkinson (Australia)

When: 25th May - 16th June 2017
6.00pm - 11.00pm

Where: Hickson Road Reserve, The Rocks, NSW 2000
