The Stripy Sock Club is for every girl and boy (and mum and dads too!). So grab your stripes and get ready to dance!
The leader of the Stripey Sock Club, Lah-Lah will be joined on stage by her bandmates Buzz the Bandleader, Mister Saxophone, Squeezy Sneezy, Tom Tom and of course Lola the Dancing Double Bass.
Lah-Lah’s shows are a truly magical experience for young active minds providing a totally interactive and hands-on experience that will capture the imagination.
Not only are children encouraged to dance, clap and sing along, they are also invited to meet their favourite Lah-Lah characters after the show and test out their skills on the musical instruments.
Meet Lah-Lah and the band, touch and try the real musical instruments, have your photo taken with the stars, and collect their autographs – it’s all included in your ticket.
This visit to Wollongong will be a return home for opera-trained singer and mother of two, Tina Harris (aka Lah-Lah), who is a former Kiama High School student and University of Wollongong graduate.
With a passion for educating and introducing children to the wonderful world of music, this is going to be one ‘toe-tapping’ good time.
“We’re all so excited about this year’s tour. The Stripy Sock Club Live Show has been created around the new TV series and features new songs and dances, which Aussie kids will be able to see on TV later this year.” – Tina Harris, lead singer and co-creator of Lah-Lah.
So how do we know the show is going to blow your stripey socks off?
With two mini groovers in tow, we have had the delight of attending previous Lah-Lah performances in Wollongong and the mini groovers are still talking about it!
The mini groovers are counting down the days until Lah-Lah’s next performance, so we think it’s safe to say that Lah-Lah is a winner!

1. Botanic Garden
It’s not a visit to Wollongong without a trip to the Botanic Garden. From the rose garden, the duck pond and the sculptures, this is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and easily spend a few hours leisurely strolling.

This 140km drive runs between the Royal National Park, just south of Sydney all the way to Bomaderry in the Shoalhaven Region. Hit the road and enjoy endless views of the sea as you pass through rainforests and charming seaside towns. Make sure to look out for the Sea Cliff Bridge, which is a highlight along the drive. We suggest going for a walk across the bridge to stretch your legs and take in the picturesque views and winding stretch of road.
In addition, The Scarborough Hotel is a great lunch spot nearby, that offers sweeping ocean views from a top-notch beer garden.
