“Kidz Fun Biz provide an excellent program particularly catering for the individual needs of children. They program to the NTCF and provide terrific resources that are teacher friendly and can be sustained within the school setting. Their approach is most professional and they are flexible in delviery. Kidz Fun Biz are Territory based and cater for students of all cultures. They make a point of skilling students to the point where many can instruct others. They build students self esteem and confidence and this has a real impact across the board. Their performance skills are of a high level and combined with their training of students usually results in a whole school performance where the whole school community is entertained”.

Kidz Fun Biz are based in Darwin, NT. Their shows and circus programs are suitable for local, remote and interstate schools. (Kidz Fun Biz are also beginning to perform internationally). In an effort to acknowledge local issues, shows and programs are often modified slightly to reflect important current issuses in each school and community.

Community and town councils have also shown a keen interest in Kidz Fun Biz with some of the programs being extended to become diversionary programs for juveniles and teenagers within the communities.

Kidz Fun Biz are becoming busier every year as they reach more and more schools and the success of their programs is more widely known. They are often rebooked immediately for the following term (or year for remote communities) once they have completed a school program. In light of this, please respect the need of Kidz Fun Biz to confirm bookings with a deposit as soon as possible when you realise they are exactly what your school/community needs!

Preferably bookings should be made at least 1-12 months in advance for local Darwin schools/councils and 6-12 months in advance for remote communities. In some cases for remote areas, when bookings are well in advance, a tour run may be arranged to help minimise costs to each school/community.

Kidz Fun Biz may visit remote communities by diesel 4WD with/or without their 17 foot caravan, or by plane where necessary.

Many grants are available from the Territory and Federal Government for initiatives such as Kidz Fun Biz shows/programs... so keep your eyes peeled and apply for any grants that become available.Keep an eye on closing dates, and please utilise any information from this website regarding our programs in your application. It would be wise however to contact Kidz Fun Biz before applying for funding to discuss dates and other details.
