North Sydney Council is inviting everyone for a picnic to celebrate the opening of the Coal Loader Platform on Saturday 24 March.

Kicking off at 3pm, there will be live music, food stalls, guided tours, interactive art, workshops, children’s activities, plays and more. Gardening Australia host Costa Georgiadis will MC the official proceedings from 6pm and then watch the rest of the harbour glow as lights go out at 8.30pm to celebrate Earth Hour.

The old coal-loading platform of the historic Coal Loader Centre in Waverton has undergone a complete makeover, transforming it into one of Sydney’s largest publicly accessible green roof spaces.  The one-hectare concrete and sandstone platform (you could fit seven Olympic-sized swimming pools side by side along its length) has been renovated into a multi-purpose recreational and ‘outdoor classroom’ space with spectacular views of the harbour.
