Fringe Westside_Swing_300x200.jpg

This is your chance to fly high above Footscray Train Station on an oversized eight meter high swing!

Chase that giddy rush of wind in your hair as you hop aboard this playful interruption of the everyday. Kids rule here, buckling you in and setting you soaring – and from way up there, you’ll see the city from a whole new perspective.

Come for a swing or come to play spectator of this seriously playful public art event that will make you feel like a third grader again.

Limited Swing tickets are reserved for pre-booking, and ticket holders will be given first priority in the queue, however, there may be a short wait as Swing accommodates one rider at a time. Walk ups are available all sessions.

Swing is also on at the State Library of Victoria in Swantson Street, Melbourne from 3 - 8 October.
