Your free what's on guide to the NT

Tucker & Tunes

Bring some extra sunshine to your week and head along to Tourism Top End for Lunch on the Lawn, where you can treat your ears to some gorgeous acoustic sounds from local musos as you tuck in.

Prayer CorbyHappening every Wednesday in June and July, Lunch on the Lawn gives you a reason to get out of the office and into the glorious Dry season weather – all the while supporting homegrown artists.

Local talents are showcased to Top Enders and welcome visitors with free tunes at noon.

“The amazing number of tourists we have in town can actually see some of our local artists,” explains the brains behind the gig, musician Tracey Bunn.

This year, the series has a particular focus on young and emerging NT talent.

“I really want to showcase some of the young talent I’ve been coming across … that’s been blowing me away,” Bunn says.

“It’s pretty important to nurture our young talent and provide them with an opportunity to practice their performance skills and hone their songs, and to get feedback from the audience and the other professionals.”

True to the event’s aims, emerging singer-songwriter Prayer Corby kicks things off. You can also expect to see some established names like Dave Spry, Melanie Gray, and Serina Pech.

Pick up a feed on the way, with nearby cafés offering a pre-order lunch service. Live local tunes and a feed in the sunshine? Yes, ploise.
