Summer Location: Queen Victoria gardens.



The aim is not for a solely firetwirling night, but a night whereby firetwirlers, jugglers, contact jugglers, diabolo etc can meet. So feel free to bring friends who may be interested.

Night starts at 6pm for all those who are keen to learn. Fire starts after dark 7.00 - 8ish till late!



So.... the location is Queen Victoria Gardens

St. Kilda Road opposite 'National Gallery of VIC' (Old Arts Gallery with spire)

The grassed area near the three raised palm trees. (Look out for the bronze statue hammer thrower)

With only a 5 minute walk over the princess bridge from Flinders Street station.

Here's the map

*WINTER LOCATION*

Under the Princess bridge (Southbank side). Where the Southbank Sundey market happens.

Nifelium, be warned, you will need at least a frost protection spell for sunday nights. dwarfs won't need it due to frost immunity, but that goes without saying!

ps welcome!

Azure: look forward to meeting you too smile The weather should warm up from September onwards so do pop down around then! As a fellow (former?) asthmatic I understand the woes that cold weather brings to us biggrin hug



Mywii: The gatherings, until daylight savings ends, is in Southbank under the arts center bridge. When daylight savings ends it takes place at the three palm trees opposite the Arts Center net to the bronze hammer throw statue.



At the time of writing gatherings are under the southbank bridge unless otherwise noted. People are usually most present between the hours of 7-9pm smile Oh and beginners are more than welcome! Bring poi and smiles and hugs especially at this cold time of year!



Hope this helps! hug
