The story began in 2017 at Juninga Centre, Litchfield Court and Nightcliff Renal Unit - and the story continues!
TRANSPORT TO AND FROM THE BIG DAY!
Why not ride your bike or catch the bus?
NT Government Public Buses will be free to all patrons coming to and from the festival on the big day Sat - 'A Day on the Foreshore'.
For those that want to stretch their legs, Bicycle Network NT will also be offering a free Bicycle Valet Parking service at the Banyan Tree Music Stage end of the festival & the Seabreeze Hotel Slab Site.
The Nightcliff Sports Club & Tour Tub deliver a free shuttle bus service along the length of the festival for everyone who needs to get from one side of the foreshore to the other in a hurry! 3 x Shuttle Stops along the foreshore, 1 x outside Nightcliff Sports Club, and 1 at the Aralia Street Shops - check the Festival Map!
This years’ festival has a strong environmental flavour we are in our third year towards becoming a seriously and deeply environmentally sustainable festival.
The 'Ripple Effect' was originally made possible in 2017 through a City of Darwin Climate Change & Environment Grant and is heading into it's third year! Originally powered by Class A Energy, Solar Solutions and in 2018 & 2019 powered by Darwin Solar Cinema, featuring local, national and international experts, as they shed their light on and address the important environmental & pressing concerns of the community.
We are continuing to encourage everyone to ‘bring your things’ (BYT) (plates/bowls/cups/utensils) as we continue to move to eliminate single use plastic, with 'Hydration Stations' provided throughout the festival & compostable plates/bowls/cups/utensils also supplied by our supportive Food/Drink Stalls.
Our food and drink vendors support this initiative by providing compostable packaging, whilst also supporting our healthy living no soft drink initiative.
