‘Storm Boy’ has grown up to be Michael Kingley, a successful retired businessman and grandfather. When Kingley starts to see images from his past that he can’t explain, he is forced to remember his long-forgotten childhood, growing up on an isolated coastline with his father. He recounts to his grand-daughter the story of how, as a boy, he rescued and raised an extraordinary orphaned pelican, Mr Percival. Their remarkable adventures and very special bond has a profound effect on all their lives.
This session is a fundraiser for the Friends of Kings Park. Your support will help us protect and celebrate our beautiful resource.

It’s a good idea to arrive early to ensure a great spot on the lawn. Give yourself time to relax and enjoy a picnic or the delicious onsite catering before the film.
