About the event

At its most basic, Cuby Rocks is simply a game of hide and seek with painted rocks! The idea is to decorate rocks and hide them in a public place for others to find. The “finder” posts a picture of the rock they found in the relevant Facebook group (tagged on the back of the rock) and can either choose to keep the rock, or re-hide it for another lucky person to find.

Not only do kindness rocks help foster creativity, they also help you to connect with your community and teach us about the power of kindness and empathy. Plus, it can be a great game of “hide and seek” as you and your children go searching for rocks hidden in your local area and beyond. And who knows… maybe it could be your rock that brightens someone’s day!

Come along on Market Day and visit our Cuby Rocks Art Station to create something special - all materials provided. BYO Rock if you prefer!

Tip: When hiding rocks, make sure to hide them somewhere they will be found. Like walking tracks, picnic areas, parks, playgrounds or near footpaths. Hopefully finding it will brighten someone’s day. To pay it forward and keep the kindness going, people who choose to keep their rock are encouraged to replace their rock with another one that they’ve decorated and hidden for someone else to find.

When: Saturday 14th Sept 2024, 9;00am - 2:00pm

Where: Cuby Makers Market, Alton St, Cuballing 6311

Cost: FREE - Gold Coin donation to cover art supplies welcome


Origins of Kindness Rocks

The movement was started by Megan Murphy in the United States as The Kindness Rocks Project.  She hoped that by decorating rocks with a kind message, an inspirational quote, or a whimsical picture and then hiding them in public places around her local area, might help connect, inspire and empower others who find them. The grass roots kindness movement has now grown worldwide with many people wanting to bring the uplifting message to their own neighbourhoods…..and now the idea has travelled all the way to Cuballing! The Cuby Rocks project is way to spread positivity around the local township and greater southern region - who knows, your rock could travel to Perth, interstate or even overseas!
