Enjoy a relaxed Picnic on The Platform at the Coal Loader with friends and family before watching the city lights go out for Earth Hour on Saturday 30 March.
Kicking off at 4pm, there will be live music, food stalls, guided tours, interactive art, workshops, children's activities, plays and roaming performers throughout the day.
Visitors will then be invited to sit back and enjoy the rest of the festivities before the lights go out at 8.30pm to celebrate Earth Hour. Now in its 12th year, Earth Hour is celebrated in over 172 countries and more than 7,000 cities and towns worldwide.
Once the lights go out and we 'turn up the dark', Earth Hour will start with an acknowledgement of the traditional owners of the land and a smoking ceremony.
Indigenous astronomer and academic researcher Bob Fuller, and Walangari, will then take you on an interactive guided stargazing tour and share their research and stories as you gaze up at the stars. Some telescopes will be provided on the night free of charge.
BYO picnic rug, family, friends and a telescope if you have one.
Saturday, March 30 at 4:00pm to 9:30pm
