Developer applies Feng Shui principles to playground
Stockland Pallara’s display village will host stalls and events for families to celebrate the Hindu Festival of Lights, known as Diwali, traditionally celebrated in October and November.
Diwali celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, hoping to inspire others to enlighten themselves to defeat ignorance and to let hope wash away despair.
The event at Stockland Pallara, just 19km from Brisbane’s CBD, will be held between 10am and noon on Saturday, November 10.
Stockland teamed up accredited Feng Shui consultant Derelle Ball, of Centaine Consultants, and Urban Play to create the one-of-a-kind inclusive park at their Pallara development.
Stockland Residential acting Queensland general manager David Laner said the event aims to connect the community.
“This will be an opportunity for families to relax, meet each other and enjoy a range of free entertainment marking an important cultural celebration,” Mr Laner said.
“With some of the best builders in the state showcasing their work at the Pallara Display Village, the Diwali festival will make a great morning out for all ages.”

He said the event was the first of six which would be held across summer to celebrate the season.
A highlight of the Diwali Festival this weekend would be Bollywood dancing sessions, which will be made free for anyone to dance along to in their 20-minute classes.
Brisbane-based company Dance Masala’s director Andrea Lam, who will be at the event, said the day would provide a great opportunity for the community to learn something new.
