Participants visited the Sydney Jewish Museum and the Montefiore Home amongst others but the group pictured below drew the job of helping to paint the peripheral fence in Centennial Park. Hot work as the mercury hit the 45.8. the hottest day ever recorded in Sydney!

AFL enthusiasts were thrilled when Swans players Rhys Shaw. Nick Smith and player turned coach Nick Davis arrived at Sydney’s Queens Park to hold a Q and A with Carnival competitors much to the delight of some of Australia’s budding young athletes.
