The kids of Aura (and the young-at-heart) enjoyed a monstrously great day out on Saturday 7 October at the Monster Machine Day celebration.

Delivered for the first time in Aura, this free event provided an opportunity for residents to safely explore the display of monster-sized machines including excavators, dozers and dump trucks that are helping to build the thriving community.

There was plenty of fun for Aura residents at the Monster Machine Day

Stockland Aura Project Director, Josh Sondergeld said she was delighted to see such a great turnout for the celebration.

“So many families call Aura home and we are excited that we were able to share an opportunity for residents to get up close with the machines that are being used in its construction,” said Mr Sondergeld.

“With a population of 10,000 people who have already chosen to call the masterplanned community home, Aura provides access to great amenities and infrastructure including local schools and over 20 parks and playgrounds, enhancing liveability for its residents.

“This inaugural family-friendly event was such a success and gave our young kids the chance to take some cool photos with these massive machines and even meet “Digger” the friendly Shadforth mascot.

“The kids definitely enjoyed being involved in such a fun-filled day, with even the littlest Aura locals embracing the opportunity to wear hard hats as part of the event’s activities.

“From massive excavators to monstrous dump trucks, these mechanical giants have played a pivotal role in constructing the foundations of our vibrant Aura neighbourhood.”

With the help of their trusty 'Monster Machines,' Shadforth has been on a colossal adventure in Aura. They've conquered it all - building 5000 lots, crafting four fantastic bridges, laying down an astounding 90 kilometres of stormwater pipes, an impressive 100 kilometres of sewer infrastructure, creating a whopping 90 kilometres of roads, and moving 8.1 million cubic metres of earth!

Monster Machine Day was an unforgettable experience showcasing the incredible machinery shaping the future of Aura.
