Young students were able to put their sailing abilities to the test on Wednesday, taking inspiration from Willy Wonka.

The Wellington branch of the Macquarie Regional Library created boats to sail down Willy Wonka’s chocolate river.

Those aged between five and 12-years-old were invited to make their best boat.

On Wednesday, July 18, inspiration will be taken from the Wizard of Oz as participants are encouraged to follow the Yellow Brick Road and build the Emerald City.
