BYO picnic and settle on the grass or on our beanbags at the new location of Wangal Park for two uniquely Australian films, Ride Like a Girl and Penguin Bloom.

It's a free event but to ensure the event is COVID safe there are limited tickets and you will need to book online.

As there is no on-site parking available we encourage you to take public transport, walk or ride. The Park is only a 15min walk from Burwood or Croydon Stations.


Ride Like a Girl (PG)

A 2019 Australian biographical sports drama film directed by Rachel Griffiths in her feature film directing debut and starring Teresa Palmer and Sam Neill. It is based on the true story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup in 2015.


Penguin Bloom (PG)

The true story of Samantha Bloom who breaks her back in an accident and is paralysed from the chest down. A year later, her children bring home an injured magpie they have found. She cautiously approaches the magpie and begins to get acquainted with the new family member.

COVID safe measures will be implemented at the event. 

No food will be available or use of the BBQ facilities – BYO picnic only. This is an alcohol free event.

As there is no on-site parking available we encourage you to take public transport, walk or ride.
