Spring is well and truly here, and The Galeries is celebrating by transforming into a Japanese Zen garden for four green-filled days. Get amongst the leaves, and, once you've located your inner peace, throw yourself into some Spring Social action. There'll be live music, artists at large and enough delicious treats to carry you through till Christmas.

Leading the food and drink program is an edible garden, presented by Lotus. Pick mandarin ice cream from a tree, sample green-speckled macarons and experiment with pumpkin mochi. After that, find out what happens when Black Star Pastry and N2 Extreme Gelato get their dessert-making skills together to create raspberry lychee cake. Then, doze off your excesses on the ground floor in one of Muji's bean sofas.

The weekend will bring a bunch of live happenings. On Friday, September 23, join tattoo gurus Little Tokyo as they paint a life-sized canvas. On Saturday, check out how bonsai masters do their thing when Bonsai Environment and Penjing Australia collaborate on a cascading display, complete with live clipping station. And, on Sunday, catch ALPHAMAMA as she closes proceedings with her signature mix of jazz, soul and hip hop.

Spend more than $100 during the festival, hang onto your receipts and pop over here to put yourself in a draw to win a trip for two to Kyoto.
