City of Darwin's


Featuring Junklandia

More Info

Let your imagination take flight at Darwin’s favourite fun day for the whole family.

At 9.15am get set for a dynamic adventure in Junklandia. Three out-of-this-world musical misfits repurpose the junk the world has forgotten in a spectacle of rhythm, dance, circus and comedy. Make a costume from recycled materials (inspo here), bring a well-loved toy for the toy swap and something like a bucket or shaker to make some noise to create a recycled instrument. This is your chance to be part of one-of-a-kind junkyard band to end this high-octane show!

We’ll be led on our recycle journey through the day by MCs Sparkle and Debarkle, wowed with magic from Hyper the Clown, shown displays of grace from Darwin School of Ballet, moved by heartfelt tunes by Yello and led in a didgeridoo (mägo) and dance workshop with Adam Yates.

Check out a range of stalls, munch on some yummy treats, get your face painted and of course be delighted by performances on our main stage and throughout the parkland.
