Kids Activities

Burton Automotive Hunter Valley Steamfest hosts a range of activities suitable for kids over the event weekend.

MAITLAND STATION PRECINCT

SPRAY PAINTING A PORTABLE

An exciting addition to the kids’ activities this year is ‘Spray Painting a Portable’.
Maitland Steam and Antique Machinery Association are providing old portable steam engines for kids to get creative with!
Sam Absurd, a talented aerosol artist from Sydney, will facilitate this fun, imaginative activity, decorating portables and bringing them back to life in the Station Precinct.

CARNIVAL LANE

Carnival Lane will be packed with all of your kids’ favourite carnival rides and for a Steamfest first, will be operating until 9.00pm!

THE RALLY GROUND

COAL SHOVELLING

A favourite for the kids, our Steamfest Coal Shovelling Races will return to the Rally Ground. Kids will be put into teams to tackle a course in a fun relay.

TRACKLESS TRAIN

Another crowd favourite at Steamfest is our trackless train, the perfect way to make your way through the entire Rally Ground.
