Australia day goers can visit the Ability Links NSW Event Tent. The Event Tent is designed to be used at public events to provide a safe and supportive space for people to retreat to when they need some time away from the noise and busyness of events. The tent contains smaller tents or 'sensory tents' with tools designed for children, particularly those who have sensory processing disorders and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
