ABC is marking 5 years of Bluey with a “Bluey Fest”, in which fans can vote for their favourite episode and a Bluey ice cream van will make stops in NSW and Queensland.
”We’re calling for all Australians to vote for their top five episodes of Australia’s #1 TV series via the ABC Kids website, from today until Monday 6 November. Whether you’re a fan of Lucky’s Dad’s rules in Pass the Parcel, can’t hold back the tears during Sleepytime, or hold a soft spot for Jean-Luc in Camping – we want to know!” says ABC.
On Sunday 19 November, ABC Kids screens Australia’s top 100 Bluey episodes as voted by the audience airing from 6am, with the #1 episode revealed at 7.20pm AEDT.
Meanwhile inspired by episodes Tradies and Ice Cream, a Bluey ice cream van will be travelling from Sydney to Brisbane with free Bluey inspired ice cream (I can see tears already).

- Newcastle – Saturday 28 October
- Forster – Sunday 29 October
- Coffs Harbour – Tuesday 31 October
