What is Stable at Riverway?
Stable at Riverway brings the story of the first Christmas to life.
Immerse yourself in the story of Christmas: you can sing with the angels, herd with the shepherds, follow the star with the wise men and meet Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus in the stable. Wander the groves, enjoy fantastic live entertainment, or just have a chat to a friendly Bethlehem local. The kids can pat the animals, dress up as a Roman centurian, be a shepherd, go fishing, get involved in craft activities and meet with the people of the first Christmas.
There will be oval sport, oval games and the skate park open nightly at the QYC youth Hub plus the QRcode adventurethon – not to be missed!!!! And at the Raintree grove you will find quiet spaces, soft music, the Townsville Catholic Education gratitude grove, the garden of Hope, Christmas blessings, storytelling and so much more.
Come once, or come every night, for an experience that makes everyone’s Christmas just that extra special.
