What Is Picnic Day?Now, it’s not just a walk in the park and sandwich or two. Picnic Day in NT is the equivalent of a bush Olympics followed by the banquet of champions. Anything and everything from truck rallies, tug-of-war, whip cracking, ball games, and children’s races line the streets of Darwin and surrounds. But the main event is the feast!
Friends and family assemble a basket (or five) full of treats, sweets and anything else they fancy on a (hopefully) warm day in the park. While outsiders may think that closing down schools, shops and delivery services is mildly extreme for a Picnic Day, locals understand the true meaning of this public holiday: fellowship.
Fill Your Picnic Basket with Home-Cooked Meals
In Northern Territory, Picnic Day is about seeing loved ones, sharing a laugh, creating memories, cracking a beer, and digging into the delicious feast prepared. Yeah...it’s mostly about the food. We all know what it’s like shopping before a food-orientated holiday: supermarkets turn a little post-apocalyptic verging on Lord of the Flies, but that’s where HelloFresh comes in. Besides eating delicious food, the best thing about HelloFresh is the culinary techniques, trade secrets, flavour combinations, and recipes you will learn and explore.
Where To Celebrate Picnic Day?Now, a delicious meal without good company is like spaghetti without the bolognese. Call up your friends and family and pick your location for Picnic Day in NT. If you’re not quite sure where to dine, or you feel like mixing it up this year, we’ll give you a few pointers. Check out the almighty Kakadu National Park just 90 minutes south-east of Darwin.
