The Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre & Mount Gambier Library are celebrating International Games Month which is held annually worldwide.

Come down to The Riddoch for a weekend of gaming to suit all ages!

Playing games encourages social interaction, as well as helping us practice essential cognitive skills, such as decision-making, higher level strategic thinking, and problem-solving. And let’s not forget they are also fun!

Board games
In the Riddoch foyer during opening hours we invite you to play noughts and crosses or the stunning native bird card game ‘Kookaburra Kookaburra’ by artist Bridget Farmer.

Beat Saber VR

Come and play the ever-popular ‘Beat Saber’ in The Riddoch’s Media & VR studio.
