Darling Harbour Launching Lunchbox Deals for May

Lunchbox Deals for May

To kick off the month-long celebrations, Darling Harbour $10 Lunchbox deals will be rolled out an incentive program encouraging Sydneysiders and CBD workers to ditch single-use plastic and opt for a reusable lunchbox. Following the recent announcement regarding the nationwide
phasing out of all single-use plastic by 2025, participating retailers will be offering $10 takeaway meals – when you bring your own empty lunchbox container.

Tumbalong Park will also transform into a lunchtime grazing area, with picnic tables and live music presented by Six8 and will be set up every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 11.30am-2.30pm. Sydneysiders can enjoy lunchtime soiree tunes presented by talented local
Sydney based musicians. On Wednesday 5 May, there’ll be giveaways of 1,000 free reusable lunchboxes – made from rice husks by award winning sustainable brand EcoSoulLife – to encourage Sydneysiders to take advantage of the $10 lunch offers.

Select retailers around the harbour will also be offering $25 Graze boards, with a variety of flavoursome smorgasbords to choose from! Sydneysiders can indulge in flavours from around the world, including antipasto platters at Casa Ristorante, Japanese Agemono platter at IIKO Mazesoba, modern Indonesian graze box at KUSUKA and even dessert platters from Braza
Churrascaria. Customers are encouraged to use their Dine & Discover vouchers to snap up a free meal.

And the action doesn’t stop there. Darling Harbour will be hosting the Amazing Graze Race, with 100 free food giveaways per week. The giveaways will be run weekly, with the location and times announced on Darling Harbour’s Facebook and Instagram. Much like the hit TV Show,
participants will need to turn up to the right location at the right time, and find the hidden QR code to redeem the free graze, which can include a free meal, drink or even a grazing board.

For those that miss out on snapping up the instant deals, they will still go in the draw to win an ultimate Darling Harbour prize package valued at $1660, including a night’s stay in Darling Harbour, with food vouchers, annual pass to local attractions, and 10 parking vouchers at Harbourside.
And ahead of Mother’s Day, the team at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo will be offering the ultimate high tea experience, with 45-minute access to the zoo, one hour bottomless mimosas and a three-tiered selection of savoury and sweet treats.

Bookings are available across three sessions
on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 May. SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and Madame Tussauds Sydney are also spoiling all Mums this Mother’s Day weekend with free entry with a paying adult.

For a staycation experience, Novotel Sydney Darling Square are offering a Mother’s Day weekend package including one night stay in an Executive Room, with A la Carte Breakfast for two and secure car parking at Wilson’s Darling Square.
