About Billy

Hi I’m Billy Backpack,

I am the Transition to School mascot for the Illawarra.

I don’t talk, but I do wave, give big high fives and love to dance to my favourite song “Hey Billy Backpack!”

You can book me to attend events for children leaving for big school.

I am FREE and like to bring a special gift for the children and their family to remember me.

If I am available I would love to visit you, make sure you book in early as I can be a very busy backpack.  See below for more details

Please read the borrowing conditions and fill out the request form below to use Billy.
