Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington

Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington
03/02/2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

One of Sydney’s best fresh food markets, Paddy’s Markets in Flemington, is taking its show into the night, bringing together some of the city’s best food trucks for a new weekly night food market. Starting July 1, the massive car park venue will be transformed into a bustling eatery for street food lovers every Saturday night from 6.30–10.30pm.

Over 25 of Sydney’s veteran and up-and-comers in the food truck scene will converge on the car park, including Chur Burger, Kayter Co., Maverick Wings and Dirty Bird. Sit at one of the converted crate tables and tuck into delights such as gelato brioche, chocolate gözleme and soda served out of lightbulbs. Menus will change regularly to match a monthly theme, so you can constantly change it up — even if you visit the same food vendor.

Entry is free — as are the retro arcade games, including Daytona and Pac-Man — and there will be regular live music by resident DJ Mike Hyper and special guests. Free parking is also available on-site.

Brickman Awesome - LEGO® Experience

Brickman Awesome - LEGO® Experience
04/02/2018 @ All Day

THE BRICKMAN IS LOOKING FOR ‘AWESOME’ BRICKIES TO HELP SMASH ANOTHER LEGO® BUILDING RECORD AT BRAND NEW EXHIBITION!

Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught announces new Brickman Awesome national tour!

Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is smashing another ‘awesome’ LEGO® record with his latest Brickman exhibiton and he’s on the hunt for Australian brickies to help him along the way!

Brickman Awesome presented by Toyota is kicking off its national tour in Sydney next month and has already broken LEGO® records before it has even opened!

Marking Ryan’s third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks, Brickman Awesome will showcase the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks!  Taking more than 500 hours to create, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting system giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space!

The exhibition will be made up of 38 never-seen-before LEGO® models, totalling more than 1.5 million bricks and clocking up more than 4,500 hours of build-time!  Brickman Awesome will also showcase the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck! Adding to the awesome-ness is a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks!

If that’s not awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® Kangaroo, Koala and even a giant Orca Whale!

Brickman Awesome has been exclusively curated by Ryan McNaught and his expert team – Ryan is the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world.

LEGO® fanatics will have lots of opportunities to show off their building skills at Brickman Awesome – visitors can help the Brickman team expand their LEGO® colony of Emperor Penguins, build their very own time machines and even put them on display next to Ryan’s LEGO® models of Doctor Who’s TARDIS and the DeLorean from Back to the Future!

There will be a 24 hour Toyota and TEG Live pre-sale starting at 9am on November 30th and tickets will go on sale to the general public at 9am on December 1st.  Tickets on sale at www.ticketek.com.au

Telstra Thanks is offering a 20% discount on exhibition tickets from 9am on Friday 1 December until 5pm on Monday 11 December, exclusively for Telstra customers.  Head to telstra.com/arts for more details on how to purchase.

Brickman Awesome will be in Sydney from 26th December 2017 until 4th February 2018 at the ICC Sydney, Convention and Exhibition Centre, before continuing around Australia, stopping in Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane

Do you enjoy singing? Or are you interested in trying a new activity that sees you do more than just shower singing and carpool karaoke?

Dairy Precinct Tour, Parramatta Park

Dairy Precinct Tour, Parramatta Park
10/02/2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre, in conjunction with Parramatta Park Trust, runs regular guided tours of the Dairy Precinct on the second Saturday of each month at 11am and 12pm, and by appointment. Tours cost $12 and must be purchased through Eventbrite.

This is your chance to uncover and explore one of Australia’s oldest buildings. Take an exclusive and private tour at the Dairy Precinct in Parramatta Park and uncover the fascinating stories and historical, social and architectural importance to Australia.

Shortly after the arrival of colonists in 1788, the Europeans recognised the fertile site’s potential for growing crops to feed the starving colony.

Built in 1796, the Dairy Cottage was home to George Salter, an ex-convict turned cattleman. It later became part of Governor Macquarie’s Domain, now on the World Heritage list.

In the early 1800s, the cottage was enlarged and converted to a dairy with a sunken milk-processing room constructed alongside. The milk room still remains today and can be viewed beneath the adjacent Ranger’s Cottage.

You will be able to see Parramatta Park story unfold in a brand-new audio-visual exhibition inside these two important historic buildings.

It’s a fascinating glimpse into our colonial past and Parramatta’s significant Aboriginal history.

Due to the historic nature of The Dairy Precinct and fragile nature of the buildings, entry to the cottages is limited to small groups of no more than 15 at a time. There are also uneven surfaces inside the cottages and surrounding gardens, paths and entries that may cause trips, slips or falls.

A number of areas in the Dairy Precinct have limited accessibility. If you have special access requirements, please contact the Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre on 02 8839 3311.
