2018 Cubby House Challenge®

The largest and most high-profile fundraising activity on the Kids Under Cover calendar, the 10th Cubby House Challenge® is set to take place again in March 2017!

Kids Under Cover is the official charity partner of the 2018 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.

With an aim to raise much-needed funds, whilst increasing our profile within the wider community, the Cubby House Challenge® provides the perfect platform for supporter and community engagement in the lead up to the event and onsite at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show.

Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show is the largest horticulture event in the Southern Hemisphere with over 100,000 visitors through the gates over the five show days. The Kids Under Cover Cubby House Village is a major draw card for visitors who flock to see some of the best cubbies in Australia.

The leading build and architectural teams take on the challenge to build Australia’s best cubby.  Cubbies are judged by a panel of experts with all teams vying for the title of ‘Australia’s Best Cubby’. The cubbies are then auctioned with the highest selling cubby selling for a record breaking $26,000 in 2017.
