Grab some dinner from a food truck whilst chilling out to the tunes. A variety of different cuisines may see you sampling some authentic Venezuelan food from Hola Fresco (3 Feb) or devouring gourmet German sausages from Fritz's Wieners (3 Feb & 17 Feb). Char Char Food Truck has ribs and burgers (10 Feb & 24 Feb) whilst Trinhy's is an exploration of Vietnamese cuisine (10 Feb & 24 Feb). For Japanese food, chow down with Sakura on Wheelz (17 Feb).

Cool down with an exquisite treat from Serendipity Ice Cream and the inventive Icicle Bicycle or enjoy a drink from the pop-up bar.
The artisan crafts market comes in the form of a suitcase forage where you rummage through bags of arts and crafts at the intimate market, fountain-side. With an assortment of jewellery, bags, artworks, clothing and candles, you may find the perfect gift for someone hard to buy for or that 'something unique' for your house.
Admire the unusual fountain whilst there as well. It is actually known as the Hornsby Water Clock and is a kinetic sculpture titled Man, Time and the Environment. Designed by Victor Cusack, the clock is fully functional and powered by water. Mounted on a floating pontoon, it rotates every 12 hours as it sweeps past roman numerals in the pond of the fountain.
Soothe your soul to the sounds of the water and the tunes of musicians. It's a great place to relax and hang out with family and friends.
