Dirtgirl & Costa the Garden Gnome are on a mission…a picnic mission! They are looking for some little helpers to help them dig up some picnic mission magic!
This get grubby adventure kicks off from the Royal Botanic Gardens Observatory Lawn for a pre-picnic nature walkabout, sharing the love of nature and joy of gardening with Dirtgirl and Costa the Garden Gnome.

Next, it levels up with the Great Family Picnic Parade, taking the fun all the way to The Great Local Picnic.

Join the gang and supercharge the mission by dressing up in your favourite garden, flower, gnome or animal costume. Perfect for the whole family….this is one picnic mission not to miss.

Then join The Great Local Picnic with a huge line up of sustainability speakers and a range of family nature-inspired activities, sensory play and nature based art activities.
