Campbelltown's Winterland to have 'quiet time' in 2019

Two 'quiet' sessions will be set aside at this year's Winterland festival in Campbelltown.

The announcement means that youth and adults with a disability can enjoy the ice skating, rides and attractions at their own pace at Koshigaya Park.

Campbelltown Council, with support from Winterland contractors Joylands and Stars on Ice, will provide two free, 90-minute quiet sessions at the ice skating spectacular.

Mayor George Brticevic said the quiet sessions would meet the needs of the Campbelltown community and ensure that everyone had the opportunity to enjoy Winterland.

"We hosted Winterland for the first time last year and it was extremely popular with our community," he said.

"We wanted to ensure that everyone could be comfortable to take part this time.

"We are conscious of the individual needs of our residents and responding to be inclusive every way we can."

Winterland will return to Koshigaya Park for the school holidays from Saturday, July 6 to Sunday, July 21.

The quiet sessions will be held from 8.30am to 10am on Tuesdays, July 9 and 16 at no cost to people with a disability, their carers and siblings.

Both sessions include a sensory tent and there will be no announcements, flashing lights or music played at each event.

Bookings for the two quiet session events are now open.
