The 104-Storey Treehouse with Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton: Bendigo

Join Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton as they celebrate the tenth book in their Treehouse series! The 104-Storey Treehouse introduces 13 new levels of mischief and wonder. Stupid-hat level? Check. Refrigerator-throwing level? You bet. Bun-fighting and tangled-up levels? A deep-thoughts thinking room? You know it.

Climb the never-ending staircase, visit Mount Everest, shop at the Two-Dollar Shop and the Two-Million-Dollar Shop. Save your burps in the burp bank; make money or honey in the money-making machine. Barricade yourself in the mighty fortress! Relax in the peaceful sunny meadow full of buttercups, butterflies and bluebirds … and help Andy find a cure for his aching toothache.

Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up!

Please note that this is a live event for children, with Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton – not the stage production version.

This event is best suited for children ages 5–12. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while participating in Wheeler Kids events. Children under three, free on the knee.
