Past Events

Aussie Hands organises various events across Australia – the most popular event is the annual Easter Egg Hunt, art/craft activities and challenging aerobatics at BOUNCE. Events are a fabulous way to meet other families who are experiencing different milestones with their baby, toddler and primary school aged children born with hand differences. Aussie Hands also organises workshops/programs for parents/grandparents so that they can share their concerns and hear from adults born with hand differences.
