Fairy Tale Toadstool

Spring has sprung, and from Monday 28 September the streets and parks of Burwood will come alive with friendly fairies, elves, trolls and gnomes. Can you find them all? Join us for this fun outdoor activity for all the family. 

Have you found one of the fairytale characters? Learn more about their personality, favourite books and foods. 

Download your map(PDF, 625KB), which includes a checklist of characters and clues to where they are hiding!

If children and families would like to help others find fairy locations around the Burwood Local Area they can post a photo to social media and hashtag #fairytalefinders or tag @burwoodlibrary and we will share the picture to give other fairytale hunters a clue.

The first 10 photos to be tagged with #fairytalefinders and @burwoodlibrary will receive a $20 Dymocks voucher. See Terms and Conditions below. We can't wait to see who you find first!
