IndigiDayOut exceeds expectation

Thousands flocked to Indigiscapes on June 3 to participate in the IndigiDayOut Festival.

Operations manager Jeanette Adams said the crowds exceeded expectations and thanked the blue skies for the massive turnout.

“The people just keep coming back every year.  This is a glorious way to spend your Saturday,” she said.

The festival offered a myriad of activities for children and plenty of information and stalls for adults. There were market stalls, native plant displays, trackless train rides, animal displays, barbecue and a music festival across two stages hosted by Folk Redlands.

The headline act was Troy Jungaji Brady. Other performers included Mama Juju & The Jam Tarts, Franké & The Blues Revolution, Stockade and Diddly Squat. 

“It’s all about the community.  The day was planned as a celebration of World Environment Day which has a theme of connecting people to nature.  That makes this perfect for us,” she said. 

Visitor Delphine Hattingh of Alexandra Hills said she was a regular at Indigiscapes where she enjoyed the walks, the cafe, the plants and “the peace”.

“My children have really enjoyed all the activities and they have seen lots of their friends from school here,” she said.

IndigiDayOut was a joint initiative between Folk Redlands, Indigiscapes and Redland City Council.  This was the 16th event.
