Special Event, Family


Free Event

The big day out for our littlest arts lovers is back!

Bring a sense of adventure, your favourite teddy bear and the whole family to The Esplanade for a free fun day like no other. City of Darwin Teddy Bears’ Picnic is an annual institution and this year we’ve planned a morning with the lot!

Parents, you’re used to taking pics of the kids. Well acclaimed interactive art experience I See You Like This turns the camera around and invites children to art direct a creative portrait directly on your face!

Play your favourite party games in a bubble-filled children’s disco to the backing of a blend of kid-friendly tunes. And help artist Peta Goodrem decorate a hungry papier maché frog and its dragonfly snacks.

That’s as well as the stalls you know and love, a huge cast of roving performers and all your favourite artistic activities.
