An Australian Event Award 2012 finalist, Autumn Vibes is the launch event that kicks off Autumn in Your Gardens. Autumn Vibes is a free multicultural day of music, dance, opera, storytelling, art, talks, walks and children’s activities (small charge) – all linking plants in the Royal Botanic Garden to their countries of origin. There will also be a diverse array of multicultural foods for sale.
Autumn Vibes 2013 is shaping up to be an exhilarating day focusing on plant collections from South America, Asia, the Pacific Islands and our own Indigenous plant collections. Back by popular demand are TaikOz and Riley Lee. Adding to the thunderous percussion of Asia, Autumn Vibes will be introducing the exciting samba drums of Brazil accompanied by samba dancers and capoeira, filling the Garden with the energy of Rio.
