Sydney’s extraordinary new six-hectare foreshore park, Barangaroo Reserve, will come alive this October with the latest instalment of the three-month Barangaroo Welcome Celebration this spring.

The new October program explores the theme of ‘sea’ in honour of Barangaroo’s 200-year history of maritime activity, and will boast a packed three weekends of free art, entertainment, talks, and tours for the whole family.

Everyone is invited to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy food from some of Sydney's best food trucks serving a delectable feast of signature picnic-style dishes. Free live music will evoke the bustling atmosphere of the working harbour and will feature artists such as Sousaphonics (October 10 & 24), Bird Parade (October 10-11), The Cope Street Parade (October 11 & 25), Lolo Lovina (October 17), The Morrisons (October 18), and Gramophone Man (October 24-25).

The Cutaway 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 tells the many stories of the area.

A series of discussions and artist talks will inspire those with a deeper interest in the site’s 200-year modern social history. These include The Welcome Project (October 10 & 18), where proud Australians who began their life in Australia as refugees and asylum seekers share their stories, Mischief and Misdemeanours (October 11 & 17), a true crime discussion on tales of crooks and cops in Sydney’s past, Hungry Mile to Revolt (October 25), where visitors can learn about the infamous Hungry Mile, and a Welcome Celebrations talk by Creative Director Gill Minervini (October 24) on the ‘Sea’ theme and the commissioning of Arrivals and Departures.

Free 30 minute guided tours are also on offer to learn more about Barangaroo, the woman for whom the place is named after, and discover the insider story of the making of this new headland park.
