The Garden Social

Thu 6th January, 2022 – Mon 14th February, 2022
Tarpeian Precinct, The Domain, Royal Botanic Gardens
Macquarie Street, Sydney
Pull up a lawn chair or bean bag at the Royal Botanic Garden for a summer pop-up of food, drinks and live music. Plus, a glowing floral installation that comes alive at night.

Lounging on a bean bag, G&T in hand, and chatting with friends against a backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Sound good?

The Garden Social is letting you do exactly that for a month at the Tarpeian Precinct of the Domain in the Royal Botanic Garden. Unlike last year's rotating food truck situation, you can order food from a dedicated menu – think beer-battered fish'n'chips, chickpea and herb falafel, pork and prawn dumplings, truffle mushroom gnocchi and more.

Full drinks service is available at a four-sided al fresco bar pouring cocktails made with Fever-Tree mixers, plus beer and wine.

Live music will be performed by members of Sydney's Conservatorium of Music, with 64 acts on the lineup. And after the sun sets, a tunnel of glowing floral lights come alive and change colour.

Thu to Fri 5pm–10pm
Sat 11am–10pm
Sun 11am–8pm
