The Grounds Willy Wonka inspired ‘Garden of Sweets’ is here

Come with me,
And you’ll be,
In a world of pure imagination…
This wildly colourful installation has arrived at The Grounds.
Open from 7am daily, our installation is free to visit and there are so many things to explore.


We’re lighting up The Grounds laneways with giant neon lollipops, jumbo sweets and much more!

To mark the launch of our new installation, we’ll be bringing The Grounds to life at night with dessert markets.

Tickets to our opening event on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July with live entertainment and a variety of extremely delicious food carts (which you’ll only find on our event nights, so don’t miss out).

If sweets aren’t your thing, we’ll have our classic savoury options on offer, but here’s a little taste for what to look forward to if they are…

  • Coloured waffle cones with a variety of ice cream flavours and delicious toppings
  • Fresh donuts made in The Grounds Bakery with different fillings and coatings to choose from
  • Blueberry Crepe Station with blue crepes and blueberry everything!
  • Fizzy Drinks with sherbet bombs
  • Lolly Cart with all the sweets you could dream of, including fudge, meringues, giant gobstoppers, sour lollies and more
  • Hot Chocolate Fondue station with fresh fruit, brownie cubes, choc chip cookies and more…
