After the work-week marathon, holing up at home all weekend can be mighty tempting. Still, while technology has gifted us with the amazing ability to get both food and entertainment without changing out of our PJs, you might still feel like fresh air and socialising. So, on the first Sunday of each month — starting on Sunday, February 4 for 2024 — you can swap the hermit life for an outside hangout.

The Sound Society is an initiative that fills Roma Street Parklands with music on the regular, with live tunes echoing through different parts of the inner city spot depending on the day and date. This time around, if a slow Sunday lunchtime with a soundtrack is your style, this is the place to head — picnic blanket in hand.

Head along from 11am–2pm for tunes by various musicians, with Katanak doing the honours in February on the Lakeside Lawn.

Food trucks will also be onsite, including Gelato a Go-Go and BBQ Roadshow Low n Slow.

Also, The Garden Room Cafe does picnic hampers — or you can BYO snacks if you prefer.
