Community Event

7 Dec 2019

An evening of magical Christmas fun. Enjoy a picnic in the beautiful Lanyon gardens and sing along with the Sing Australia Choir and Tuggeranong Valley Band as the sun sets over the Brindabellas.

Take a tour of the homestead decorated for a nineteenth century Christmas and lit with candles. Children and families can participate in crafts and games from a bygone era, making a 19th century style spice scented Pomander to hang on the Christmas tree, a colourful Christmas crown to wear and play Victorian era games like hoopla and skittles.

Barracks Café Christmas Picnic Hampers can be ordered online through Eventbrite when you book your ticket. Wine, beer and cocktails available through the Barracks Café.
