Celebrate one year of the harbourside park with 3,000 free cupcakes and a pop-up nature playground

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since Barangaroo Reserve opened? Sydney’s newest park is celebrating its first birthday with a family day of free activities, including a Welcome to Country on Walumil Lawn and a performance by Sydney Children’s Choir overlooking Sydney Harbour.

There’ll be a pop-up nature playground in the Cutaway from 10am to 3pm, where kids can play in a giant sand pit, landscape a garden and learn to brew native bush teas. Kids can help build the giant gunya tunnel, make their own mini cubby houses or create their own stone artwork. 

There’ll be birthday cake – and 3,000 free birthday cupcakes! Plus, it’ll be the final day of the major outdoor exhibition Sculpture at Barangaroo, and if you’ve got energy to burn there’s an orienteering race around Barangaroo that kicks off at 11am.
