Stockland is rolling out the action at its popular Aura community, with a free family fun day to celebrate the opening of the new Baringa Skate Plaza and Civic Square on Saturday (8 September).
Free skating clinics and kids’ hip hop classes will kick off the fun, which runs from 10am to 1pm and includes live music, a range of food trucks, and face painting.
The Baringa Civic Square is the latest major milestone for Aura and incorporates the skate plaza, a giant feasting table, a formal Town Square for civic ceremonies and gatherings, sculptural play elements, a kick and throw space, and a boardwalk overlooking the Lamerough Creek Conservation Area.
Hannah Madill, Development Manager for Stockland, encouraged everyone to join in the celebrations.
“We’re thrilled to be opening a key component of the vibrant heart of Aura’s first suburb of Baringa,” Mrs Madill said.
“Aura has been carefully designed to encourage residents to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle, and quality amenities such as the Baringa Skate Plaza and Civic Square are part of that approach.
“The Civic Square is easily accessible by all residents via our network of pathways and will allow families to enjoy a range of recreational spaces while fostering a real sense of community.  
“Aura will eventually feature an extensive 200 kilometre network of walking and cycling paths to encourage residents to get on their bikes and scooters and be anywhere within the community in 15 minutes.”
The skate plaza is the focal point of the Civic Square and has been designed in conjunction with Convic, a leader in skate park and youth space design.
The opening celebrations were to include the Aura Skate Titans competition involving Sunshine Coast skateboarders battling it out in an exclusive qualifying round for the Etnies Rumble on the Reef Queensland Street Skateboarding Championship. The contest has been postponed however due to a chance of rain, with a new date to be announced soon.  
The new Baringa Skate Plaza and Civic Square is on Edwards Terrace, adjacent to Baringa State Primary School.
Aura is the largest masterplanned community ever undertaken in Australia under single ownership and more than 20,000 new homes will be created on the 24 square kilometre site over the next 30 years.
