100 Days of Summer
To celebrate summer, the National Trust is holding a huge range of events across all of its properties. Check out the full program of tours, performances and special events on our website.
Teddy Bears' Picnic
The Teddy Bears’ Picnic is the National Trust’s (Victoria) longest running and most popular event and we are absolutely thrilled it is now in its twenty-fifth year. To mark this special occasion we are throwing Australia’s biggest dress up party! So bring your kids and of course your teddy bears to the beautiful Rippon Lea gardens in Elsternwick.
Kids and teddy bears can dress up as anything – a favourite superhero, a prince or princess, a cartoon character like Elsa from Frozen, a firefighter or police officer, pirate, fairy or whatever takes your fancy. There’ll be prizes for best dressed teddy bear so get creative.
There will be roving entertainment, performances, a treasure hunt and plenty of fun activities to keep the kids and bears occupied for hours. So bring a picnic, grab the teddy bears, roll out a rug, meet Ripplea Bear and enjoy this great day out.
