Sydney’s extraordinary new six-hectare foreshore park, Barangaroo Reserve, comes to life in September for the first instalment of the Barangaroo Welcome Celebration, a three-month program of free music, art, talks, family events, and picnics every weekend in spring, overlooking Sydney Harbour.

The naturalistic cove, foreshore and the Cutaway will be a vibrant hub of activity every weekend with one newly commissioned art installation each month, live music, talks, site tours, workshops and picnic-style food across the month.

The Welcome Celebration begins with the September Giant Picnic on Sunday, 6 September (10am-8.30pm) which will explore the theme of ‘Stone’ and shine a spotlight on the Indigenous foundations of Barangaroo.

September Giant Picnic highlights include a Barangaroo Welcome Walk at 10am from Hickson Road followed by the Opening Fire Ceremony and Welcome to Country featuring traditional song and dance. Registrations are essential at www.barangaroo.sydney.

In September the Cutaway space will house a large-scale sculptural installation by contemporary artist Brook Andrew entitled Stone – The Weight of History, The Mark of Time.

Food Curator Alex Herbert will bring together some of the country’s best food producers and chefs to create extra special Giant Picnic events on the first Sunday of each month, including the unforgettable ‘Stone’ themed picnic experiences on 6 September.

A special Dusk Ceremony will be held at 5.30pm as a tribute to the powerful Cammeraygal woman, Barangaroo before a magnificent 6pm fireworks display directed by Fortunato Foti.

In addition to this, September visitors will also enjoy additional free performances by some of Australia’s leading contemporary musicians and entertainers, including Casey Donovan and Pirra (September 6), Marcus Corowa (September 13, 26), Leah Flanagan (September 12, 20, 27) and Koomurri Dancers (September 12, 19 & 26).

Additional talks, tours, food, entertainment, music, activities and events will take place on the remaining weekends in September and food trucks, stalls and bars will serve picnic-style fare to suit all tastes and ages, inviting visitors to relax on blankets and deck chairs.
