Join the AWA for a sit down Thanksgiving lunch with roast turkey, real pumpkin pie and traditional sides at the lovely Ernie Cropley Cricket Pavilion on the grounds of the University of Melbourne.  Bring your entire family and friends to celebrate and give thanks for another great year.  There will be crafts for the kids, and lots of room for kids to fun around and a bonus University Cricket T-20 match to watch throughout the afternoon. 

This event is open to the public in the spirit of Thanksgiving, but tickets MUST be purchased via the trybooking link here  They cost $45 for adults and $20 for kids (5 and under free)

Please book your tickets on trybooking, as sending an email RSVP does NOT secure your place.  If you have any questions regarding this event, feel free to email us via the RSVP button.  


Please remember to bring an  unwrapped  gift for a young child, which will be directly donated to a child in need via the Royal Children's Hospital.

Attached you will find directions to the Ernie  Cropley Pavilion at the University of Melbourne.  Please note the following:
  • there is no parking on the historic  Parkville Campus 
  • the shortest walk is from College Crescent through Morrison Close (starting at the Divinity College - see map)
  • paid and free parking are indicated on the map
  • the Pavilion is directly north of the Cricket Oval 
  • Should you have any problems finding the lunch facility, please contact Joy V on the day at 0478406353
In addition, the University of Melbourne Cricket Club will be playing a T-20 match on the Oval, so there will be no access to this ground.  Please watch for stray balls and feel free to participate as a spectator at any time as the Pavilion has lovely, spectator seating adjacent to our lunch function area.

Thank you for your support of the  AWA!
