Wynsideout at Wynyard Park

Wed 29th June, 2022 – Thu 30th June, 2022
8:00am – 6:00pm
The two-day festival is here to amp up your midweek with an array of outdoor games, food and guest talks with the likes of world surfing champion Layne Beachley, Olympic gold medallist Kerri Pottharst and Indigenous author Paul Callaghan. Plus, crisp fried chicken from Butter and Donut Papi doughnuts.

Wynsideout is a new experience aiming to break up your regular 9-to-5. Spread across four zones – play, eat, relax and collaborate – the two-day park festival can be tackled solo, with family, friends or colleagues.

In the essence of team spirit (or healthy rivalry) take part in archery, golf simulators, table tennis, corn hole, ring toss and Connect Four in the Play Zone. If you’re feeling at the top of your game, grab a table tennis paddle and take on Commonwealth Games representative Kane Townsend.

At the Relax Zone you’ll find rejuvenating massages and comfy hammocks for lounging in, as well as the pop-up Cuppa Cafe. The coffee spot will host a series of impactful conversations with speakers including Wiggle Greg Page, seven-time world surfing champion Layne Beachley, Olympic gold medallist Kerri Pottharst, Indigenous author Paul Callaghan, London bombing survivor Gill Hicks and sustainability expert Jo Taranto.

At the Eat Zone, Stitch Bar will be passing out bar snacks, the crew from Butter will be frying its signature crunchy chicken and Santa Ana will be cooking Oaxacan Mexican specialities. If you’re craving something sweet, Donut Papi’s doughnuts and 15 Centimetres’ Japanese cheesecakes are the answer.

On tunes you’ll find Aria-nominated singer-songwriter Matt Walker, plus FBI Radio’s DJ Jack Shit dropping commercial house and turntablist DJ Klevakutz mixing and scratching with trademark intensity.

Feel like a change of scenery? Book a free meeting space in the outdoor oasis –the perfect antidote to a fluoro-lit office.
