* Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory *

Family event on Friday 25 March, 5 - 8pm at Darlington Parklands


There’s nothing better than spending an evening under the stars with your favourite film and friends. Round up the troops and head to beautiful Darlington Parklands for the screening of an original family favourite, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

In honour of Neighbour Day, 27 March, this is the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, disconnect from our busy lives and enjoy the company of your neighbours, friends and family. Don’t forget to pack the picnic rug!

As the sun sets and the stars come out, enjoy live music, face painting and games from 5pm accompanied by a tasty bite from our visiting food trucks (including Thom & Ann's, Dog Stop (tasty hot dogs) and Sweet KCs (donuts)).who will be selling from 5pm. 

Lendlease are excited to bring the original family classic film to our doorstep after being voted as the movie of choice by our Facebook and Instagram community.

“Neighbour Day is an annual celebration of community, reinforcing connected people = connected communities,” said Graeme Knox, Senior Development Manager Lendlease.

“Yarrabilba’s movie under the stars is the perfect opportunity for a family night out, a great way to get to know your fellow neighbours. We all live such busy lives so this is a great way to reconnect, a date night with a twist, or even the neighbour in the street you haven’t seen in a while.

“We’re so excited that we can bring this community event to our residents. Let your hair down, forget your worries and just enjoy an evening under the stars.”

Enriching our community connection by bringing our residents together, the movie under the stars event is a great excuse to have a night off cooking, eat out with family, meet friends, and even make new ones. We can’t wait to see you there!
