Sydneysiders and visitors are invited to Sydney’s sensational new Harbour foreshore park, Barangaroo Reserve, for the next instalment of the Barangaroo Welcome Celebration every weekend throughout October.

The new October program explores the theme of ‘sea’ in honour of Barangaroo’s 200-year history of maritime activity. It begins with the spectacular Giant Picnic on Sunday, 4 October (11am-5pm) and includes a packed program of live music, entertainment and art for the whole family.

Everyone is invited to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy food from some of Sydney's finest chefs to serve a delectable feast of signature picnic-style dishes on Stargazer Lawn. Free live music will evoke the bustling atmosphere of the working harbour and feature the likes of Bluesfest favourite Busby Marou and gypsy-fusion band Lolo Lovina. The Cutaway, the massive cultural space built inside the headland, will house an experiential multi-media art installation by ESEM Projects entitled Arrivals and Departures.

The work brings to life the social history of the site that was once the heart of Sydney’s docklands and tell the many stories of growing up in the area as well as how some of Sydney’s immigrants first arrived here.

Visitors can also enjoy a harbour view with the tall ships, the James Craig, the Australian-built replica of James Cook's HM Bark Endeavour and Governor Bligh moored offshore. Tours of the James Craig, the only surviving Tall Ship from the golden age of sail, will be available during the day, and tug boat water displays will also be on offer from the Shirley Smith tug boat.

The family fun will continue with Hotbed Designs Printmaking craft workshops for children in the Waranara Room, the mezzanine floor of the Cutaway, where families can create their very own Harbour Hand Waver.
