Well autumn just marched on in…but it seems someone forgot to tell summer it’s time is up! Thankfully this means we can hopefully make the most of the last month of daylight saving with BBQ dinners at a local park.

Autumn is a lovely time for a drive to the ‘country’ to pick your own fruit and nuts! In season this month are apples, tomatoes, eggplants, chestnuts and walnuts.

Top 12 Local Events – Listed in Date Order

Is it just us, or is autumn (and spring) when there is a mega line up of great events!?! Well we haven’t done a proper analysis but it sure feels like it. Plus we struggled more than usual with coming up with our top 10 this month.

Now seeing we are publishing this What’s On in March guide a bit later than we had hoped (thanks to a few days in hospital), and two events may have happened by the time you read it, we have listed our top 12 worth attending in March. But there are so many other great family-friendly events happening in Marchlisted at the bottom.

1Clean Up Australia Day | 3rd March

Is it just me or is the amount of rubbish littering us parks, streets and waterways getting worse? Clean Up Australia Day is a great time to come together as a community and help our natural environment shine.

  • Where: Various locations, including Subiaco Creek, Meadowbank Wharf, Toongabbie Creek.
  • More Info

2Eel Festival | 3rd March

This family-friendly event celebrates Parramatta’s namesake, the eel, and its significance to the local Burramattagal people, who would gather in autumn to trade goods and share stories and food. You can enjoy performances and entertainment as the community comes together to celebrate Indigenous culture and connect to country. Join the fun and engaging activities on offer, with storytelling at the yarning circle, weaving, boomerang painting and more.

3Art Express | 5th March to 28th April

ARTEXPRESS is a series of exhibitions of exemplary bodies of work created by visual arts students for the 2018 New South Wales Higher School Certificate. This year’s ARTEXPRESS at the Armory is titled Curious Visions. With works by 61 students, it’s the largest of all the metropolitan exhibitions. And before/ after, you can visit the fab Blaxland Riverside Park and grab something yummy from the Armory Wharf Cafe.

4Nut Picking | From 9th March for about 6-8 weeks

Did you know that you can pick your own chestnuts and walnuts about an hours drive from Parramatta? Now pick your own nuts is more collecting them then actually picking as when the nuts ripen they fall to the ground.

There are some important things to keep in mind before setting off. Wear sturdy shoes and bring jumper/jacket/raincoat as the weather can change quickly. There is no petrol station at Mt Irvine so make sure you have a full tank before going (nearest petrol station is at Bilpin or Mount Victoria over 40kms away). And bring cash with you as there are no card facilities available.

5Cinema and Orchestra in the Park | 9th, 16th, 23rd March

On three weekends in March, City of Ryde is putting on two free outdoor cinemas and an orchestra performance for our enjoyment!
