FAIRYTALE TRAIL WITH A PRINCESS
IT'S TIME TO OPEN UP THE GATES!
We are excited to launch our new COVID safe event where children will enter a world of fairytale magic. Once Upon A Princess cordially invite you to "Fairytale Trail With A Princess" at gorgeous Carrick Hill Castle located in the leafy suburb of Springfield.
Built in the 1930's the grand castle is as old as time - just like a real fairytale. History and fairytales come together for a magical day with the Royal Princesses. Enter the land far far away, where children will see fairytales come to life right before their eyes making their way up through the the winding road leading to the castle. Stroll through the exquisite flower gardens filled with sweet scents from blooming roses, marvel at the manicured lawns, gardens, creeks, water features, ponds, and take in the picturesque views overlooking the city and coast. You may even spot the local ducks and cockatoos.
Fairytale Trail With A Princess will have children explore and discover the natural world through the castle's parklands using classic children's tales to encourage the imagination. Along the way, children will meet their favourite Princesses - Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, the Snow Sisters, Arabian Princess, Island Princess, Dancing Beauty, Little Mermaid and the Frog Princess whilst walking through a sandy track weaving past ponds and through groves of trees. The children's Storybook Trail is a wonderful children's playground that focuses on British classic tales where children will also encounter The Quidditch tree from the Harry Potter series of books, Charlotte's Web (a large rope spider's web in a frame safe for children to climb and play on) with Wilbur the pig nearby, little cubby houses, a Hobbit House, The Jungle Book and the Magic Faraway Tree leading the imagination to wonder where fairies live and more. Speaking of fairies, maybe our Tinker Fairy will vist from her pixie kingdom to say hello.
The gorgeous Royal Unicorn Ponies will also make an appearance - imagine your child's excitement when you capture the moment they meet a real Unicorn, on real castle grounds - a memory that will last a lifetime.
With Fairy Belle sprinkling her glitter fairy dust in her magical fairy garden, and the Fairy Godmother granting wishes, children will be swept into a world of fairytale magic at the royal event. We encourage children to wear their Princess best, as there are so many stunning photo opportunities around the estate.
Each child will receive a Princess wand and necklace as keepsake to remember their visit to the Royal Castle.
Pack a picnic basket, rug, sunscreen, hat and spend the day exploring the grounds. Even Peter Rabbit's Garden!
Bottled water, a princess biscuit treat and hand sanitiser stations will be provided, with COVID Marshals present.
Ticket numbers are limited due to COVID restrictions, please book early to avoid disappointment.
