8-11 September – Central Coast, NSW
Set on the grounds of Mt. Penang Parklands at Kariong, the Australian Springtime Festival which sees over 35,000 visitors annually, will run for four days from 8 to 11 September.
Major highlights of this year’s event will be the new Night Garden designed by leading landscaper Simon Head of Simply Foliage. This exhibit will be set up in a covered marquee showcasing an illuminated floral and garden display. While on the weekend dates, a new kids interactive Enchanted Garden will open with storytelling, pony rides, character shows and face painting.
Local cuisine, community and industry will also come together for the annual Central Coast Cook Off, a pioneering event convened by Youth Connections, that teams award winning chefs with hospitality students in a battle of culinary combat.
